The Islington Seniors’ Centre provides programs and services to promote the physical, emotional and social wellness of adults 55+ living in the community. The centre strives to maximize seniors’ ability to live a healthy, active, independent, happy, and satisfying life. The Islington Centre provides a warm and friendly place for seniors to gather with others to socialize and take part in recreational programs and supportive services.
Jacqueline is a Toronto based artist and instructor with a degree from U of Guelph in fine art; she has also studied Theatre Design at U of T and Drafting at Ryerson. In her role as a teacher she "sees her role as opening student's eyes to new ideas, technique and opportunities so they can allow their own style to emerge."
