BLANK CANVASES

Using the authentic studio-based method of artistic creation, Blank Canvases was founded with the mission to teach children about real local Toronto Artists. Our trained Artist Educators engage the students in activities that promote creative thinking and inspire them with civic pride in their city and communities.

Our programme is based on Ontario Ministry of Education Arts Curriculum with student centered facilitation. It includes best practices in Art Education reflecting open ended choice making, an encouragement of individuality, fostering expression, and a focus on process rather than product.

This year, in keeping with our mission, we also will be featuring a Contemporary Toronto Artist.

Using visual reference and examples the kids can make their own mixed media inspired art using sustainable materials and various art.Kids’ Zone Activities
