Virtual Art Hive @Agnes, Summer 2020
Art Hive @Agnes is online! Join us for this popular program using our virtual platform. Adults (18+) will be invited to explore the artistic process through experimentation and play. If you are looking for more guidance, our art therapist and facilitator will be present to support your creative journey by offering inspired thematic projects. Art Hive @Agnes will address themes of empowerment, wellness and self-care, while fostering a safe space and a sense of community. No artistic experience is necessary. This accessible program is free for all adults.
This program is made possible through the generous support of the Birks Family Foundation.
