Victory Art Project: Day 1

After months of planning, the art project at Victory Public School has finally started! Back in January, four parents approached the school with an simple idea: bring a few hours of art instruction into each classroom, exhibit the finished pieces downtown, making them available for purchase with the money being donated to local charities.

        We were thrilled when Guelph School of Art agreed to lead the art-making, and day 1 proved that they're not only a talented bunch, but endlessly patient and quick on their feet.

This project not only aims to provide fun and practical art instruction to students, but to also expand the children's understanding of 'community'. We can encourage our kids to be engaged, empowered, and creative...even while they're still in grade school. Below are a few pics from the day...
