Rotary Education Centre

The MacLaren Art Centre is pleased to present an exhibition that highlights artwork created in the fall session of Art Explorers.

Art Explorers is a studio-based programme for adults with exceptionalities from Camp Hill and Simcoe Community Services. Through a series of twelve workshops, adult participants created art in a fun and exploratory environment fostering creativity, problem-solving, risk-taking and self-confidence. Led by regional Art Therapist Lisa Nackan, participants tried their hand at a variety of materials, techniques and studio approaches―with surprising results!

Throughout the twelve weeks, Lisa Nackan led participants in workshops exploring painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture, with a focus on making art in new and engaging ways. These vibrant artworks represent each participant’s creative response to mood, music and the environment around them.

Appreciation is extended to the May Court Club of Barrie for their ongoing support of the Art Explorers programme at the MacLaren Art Centre.
