Art-ish

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Art-ish: A project by Oakville Galleries in collaboration with Halton Healthcare Mental Health Program

Art-ish is a one-year pilot project providing access to the visual arts for youth in Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital's Children and Adolescent Inpatient Care Unit (CAPIS) and the Recovery Through Education of Adolescents and Children in Halton (REACH). Led by an art teacher and professional art therapist, weekly workshops facilitate learning about and producing artworks that support healthy self-expression, promote social and adaptive problem-solving skills, establish positive self-identities, and foster patient self-confidence and empowerment.


Art-ish is generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
