By celebrating the work of local artists, students are motivated to discover their own creativity.

“The Blank Canvases program provided all students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 with an opportunity to feel successful in expressing themselves as budding artists. Using the work of Toronto based artists as inspiration students were able to recognize the talent of homegrown artists while realizing their own creativity and capabilities.”

Joanne Saragosa, Principal, St. Luke Catholic 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.
