Inaugurated in 2013, the Weekend Family Arts Drop-in provides art workshops for Regent Park families on Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, year-round. Each workshop has an attendance of 6-10 families and 25-30 participants. In its infancy, this program reached 15 families and has achieved a level of popularity where today, over 95 different families attend annually and with some coming from all over Toronto. Family members from toddlers to seniors attend this unique program and have the opportunity to create art in a collaborative spirit using a range of art materials and techniques. This program strengthens the cultural fabric of our community by allowing an opportunity for inter-generational learning and sharing. As with all of our programs, healthy snacks and refreshments are provided.
