The second edition of Art Child 2013 will be taking place on Sunday, January, 27th, 2013 at The Yow, 172 Dalhousie Street, unit 200 with the collaboration of our biggest supporter, Ottawa Carleton University community radio, CKCU FM 93.1.
Art Child 2013, will debut this year from 1:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Sunday, January 27th, 2013, and remained a free event once again, rain or shine. The workshops will begin at 1:00 pm and would focused strictly in encouraging creative outlets of expression through painting, poetry, design, music and other art forms. Art Child will be ending with a fashion show and a live performance from Baiyu.
The ultimate goal of Art Child is to provide the opportunity for children, to partake in activities that are no longer readily available within the school system. Workshops and classes such as dance, creative written expression, painting and acting are all being slowly but surely eliminated and an event such Art Child, offer the chance to continue the artistic expression of our children outside of the classroom.
The first edition of Art Child, a free event for children, was a great success. To keep Art Child free in 2013 and in the remaining future, we need the help of the community. In Da Industry and CKCU Fm will be fund rising throughout this year leading up to Art Child 2013. Our goal is to make $5000.00 to keep Art Child a free children event.
