The Living Arts Centre's ARTward Bound 2017 team is hitting the road this summer bringing the visual and performing arts to communities across Mississauga.
Join us for art filled days throughout July and August! Our friendly instructors will help budding artists experiment with paint, sculpture and mixed media. Participate in a Hip Hop workshop and learn some new moves, then be entertained with a children’s performance! Performances vary by location and date. A lunch program is available at select locations. All activities are FREE. This program is recommended for children ages 5 to 12 and participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. No pre- registration is required, simply drop in for part of the program or join us for the full day! Detailed information about activities, program timings, and locations can be found at www.livingartscentre.ca
