The Living Arts Centre Brings Visual & Performing Arts to Communities Across Mississauga

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.
