Wednesdays are for art with an edge! Guided by regional artist and arts therapist Lisa Nackan, this drop-in virtual art programme is designed to offer like-minded youth a place to meet online and be creative. Spend art-filled afternoons from the comfort of home exploring contemporary art, ideas and current issues in a variety of engaging materials and techniques.
Advance registration is required. A Zoom link will be provided prior to the start of every workshop. Participating youth are required to check their emails in advance of the workshop. Materials kits will also be provided and need to be picked up in advance of each workshop.
Regional artist and arts therapist Lisa Nackan discusses the program and explains why having a positive outlet to connect with others and deal with the challenges of the pandemic is so critical.
Lisa Nackan is an Art Therapist and Registered Psychotherapist. “I feel extremely privileged that the work I do combines three of my greatest passions: the creative process (art and writing), psychology (growth and healing), and social activism (community work). My life is passionately fueled by the words ‘making the invisible visible’. It is my belief that all art, in some way, makes the invisible visible. Even if it can’t be seen yet.
