Youth & Addiction Recovery: The Healing Power of Art and Creative Expression
March 29 @ 12:00 am - May 10 @ 12:00 am
In partnership with Portage Ontario Residential Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Centre for youth, Elora Centre for the Arts (ECFTA) offers arts-based programming in our classroom (includes 12 sessions). Through individual and group-based art projects, students will have the opportunity to learn art techniques and practice the creative freedom of accepting mistakes, problem-solving and sharing using their projects as the catalyst. The program will culminate in a public mural installation as well as work shown in a youth exhibition, and will include student reflections of their artistic journey.
The first pilot session of this program has been partially funded by a generous grant from the Centre Wellington Community Foundation.
