This summer our theme will be 'Wearable Art' and 'Altered Clothing; participants will be encouraged to bring their own materials to work with while being inspired by clothing designers of the past and present, events, and cultures. We are working towards our very own fashion show at The Elora Centre for the Arts.
*No experience necessary!
Evening Programs ~ Free!
We have created specific programs for youth ages 12 to 18. If these specified projects are not of interest youth are welcome to set-up their own projects, read and/or use the computers & Internet at their convenience. Most supplies are available in thanks from many generous donors but if you have a special project in mind please come with the appropriate supplies.
Evening Programs will be centered around 'Creative Journaling / Sketching'; a creative way to visually design your sketchbook or journal!!! Youth can bring their own journal or sketchbook or purchase a journal from the Elora Centre for the Arts for a small fee of $10. Most art supplies will be provided.
Please let us know if you would like to purchase a journal – so that we are sure to have enough on hand.
Note to Parents
A supervisor is
present at all times.
If you have any concerns or questions please drop by at the beginning / end of the
