8-week Art Workshop

As part of our Legends Mentoring Program, Jake’s House invites youth with autism to explore colours, combinations, strokes and textures at this interactive art workshop. Throughout this 8-week program hosted at Chaminade College, participants will take direction from a skilled art teacher and will be paired with mentors, who will help guide them throughout the activities. They will learn to paint landscapes with boundaries, as well as different abstract styles using different sensory materials, such as clay and salt. Together with their peers, they will have the opportunity to express themselves through art, to exercise their intuition and to socialize with others. By the end of the program, participants will have produced a professional acrylic paint canvas–a piece of art and a beautiful memory to take home with them!

VOLUNTEERS: Although this is an 8-week workshop, even 1 or 2 days in October or November will make a huge difference! If you can give a bit of your time on some days, you’re already a legend. We understand, attendance every week may not be possible, and we will accommodate your schedules. However, for the greatest impact, connection and experience, we encourage volunteers to participate for the full term of the workshop.
