Programs_2016_REV

This Fall 2016, Scarborough Arts is pleased to present our new suite of weekly arts workshops! After a city-wide call earlier this year that attracted emerging and professional artists and arts educators across the city, Scarborough Arts short-listed accessible workshops, events, and activities that are relevant and present an impact to the audiences of the Scarborough community.

Taking place weekly in or around the Bluffs Gallery on 1859 Kingston Road, these workshops cover different art disciplines including: visual art, literary art, theatre, music, dance, and participatory art. Workshops are categorized into five streams namely: SA Creates, SA Talks, SA Writes, SA Walks, and SA Moves. We invite everyone—artists or non-artists, audiences of all ages and skill levels—to explore their creative side and participate in these workshops.

Registration is now open for all workshops! For more information, contact Sasha Kovacs at programs@scarborougharts.com
