Because every family should have the chance to make art together!
Our first community project in 2014 took the form of a fundraising exhibit at Grazie Ristorante at Yonge and Eglinton. This exhibit showcased 37 masterpieces from a special workshop we held just for the occasion. Parents and Children painted together on large-scale canvases. The money we raised from selling these paintings helped to fund future painting workshops for less fortunate families.

“This was a wonderful learning experience for me and my little cousin Julia to take part in. She was able to gain new skills and techniques from the Raising Artists staff. Most importantly she learned that it is ok to make mistakes. She also learned an essential aspect of women’s history that has inspired her in other areas of her life. Seeing the interaction between our young artists and their mentors illustrated what true community is really about. Thank you Raising Artists!”
