NEW FOR 2013

We are presenting two NEW initiatives to expand and increase the impact of the Student Art Show:

OUTREACH TO AT-RISK AND HOMELESS YOUTH

By connecting with organizations like Youth Without Shelter, Sketch and Rexdale Pro Tech Media Centre, we will display the artwork of homeless youth and other at-risk youth who may not necessarily be enrolled in the high-school system

TOUR TO TORONTO WESTERN HOSPITAL – Apr 17-20, 2013

We’re taking the Student Art Show on tour! A selection of the students’ artwork will travel to the atrium of the Toronto Western Hospital for the benefit of patients, their families, staff and caregivers. In partnership with the Artists’ Health Alliance.
