We received some great news this week from the Halifax Peninsula Community Health Board that we have been awarded a grant to offer the Creative Start Open Studio for youth with disabilities.
This program will be different from the Creative Start Workshop we have been offering in the past, in that the open studio program will be more self directed. Essentially the way it will work is each youth in the program will decide on a medium or mediums he/she wants to explore during the ten - week period of the program. We will then provide the art materials and any training required for the youth participants.
The program will start in September and run to November, and will be offered at Veith House were Veith Street Gallery is housed.
We will be sending out information on how to register for the program in June and July.
