“I have heard nothing but positive feedback from staff regarding the Blank Canvases arts workshops in our school. It gave the students a tremendous opportunity to understand and appreciate artists as well as an opportunity to view themselves as artists. I still see students with their sketchbooks, drawing in their free time, sharing artistic ideas with friends. It was especially important for our many English Language Learners to be able to be express themselves through art when using the English language is difficult”

Miriam Zachariah, Principal/Directrice, Parkdale Junior and Senior Public School

Blank Canvases tackles the big questions: How do artists come up with their ideas? How do artists approach the world in new and different ways? When artists work how do they problem solve differently than others?

Support Us

We believe everyone should have access to art regardless of their income! We are always fundraising to take our Blank Canvases programming into the TDSB designated designated Model Schools for free! We also love to have scholarship available for our youth programme for those who can’t afford it.
