April SHOWERS bring May FLOWERS in this creative-play-day featuring expressive watercolour painting and paper. Let’s spread our arms wide and welcome April, learn about the solar eclipse and let our creativity shine in our cheery Art Classroom and Maker Space!

This school year, we have expanded our PA Day program to accommodate 36 young artists! We will be dividing our PA Day kids into 2 groups (ages 4-6 and 7-12) and working in both our cheery Art Classroom and the sunny Sparrow’s Nest Maker Space .

Led by ECFTA Art Educators Alexa Collette and Stephanie Lines-Toohill. Our PD days are a balance of guided art instruction & learning in our art classroom, and open-creative exploration in our maker space. Along with outdoor fresh air and play during breaks, as always!

About the Instructors

Alexa Collette recently graduated from the BA program at the University of Guelph and has been facilitating workshops and camp experiences for the past few years and loving every minute of it! Alexa is a painter, drawer, loves creating murals, and collaborating with the community. She is excited to create a space for art-making and exploration at the Elora Centre for the Arts!





Stephanie Lines-Toohill brings her magical mix of compassion, creativity, and mindfulness to everything she does. She reminds us to pause and find wonder in unexpected places. She helps us let go of our worries and to be brave. Steph also runs Sparrow’s Nest Makerspace, a collaborative community space of connection. You might find her on a forest walk where she finds calming inspiration and beautiful found objects. Stephanie has been leading youth art groups and community art opportunities for over 15 years. She champions the process of each artist as a curious explorer!
