We fund an art program for kids in Kapuskasing at the Indian Friendship Centre!
Here is a brief description/summary from one of our Instructors:
The Arts4all/Artshine program at the Indian Friendship Centre has been very successful in the past year. Liette has been teaching the kids in the Akwe:go (ages 7-12) every Tuesday after school. This program always has high interest with an average of 10 regular participants and some casual participants who vary on attendance. This program has reached probably close to 40 kids in total. So far the program has hosted 3 art shows and has it’s art pieces regularly showcased in a local restaurant for community purchase. The children have demonstrated that they benefit through this program as they are provided with an opportunity to express themselves creatively and show case their accomplishments. Many children have seen the results of their hard work both being displayed and encouraged through the purchases of that said art.
The Aboriginal Healthy Babies Healthy children program holds two separate Arts4all programs:
The Adult paint night offers an opportunity for parents (taught by Caro) to enjoy the art program while their children (taught by Liette) also being provided with the same opportunity. The community has been really responsive with this program as it has averaged about 20 adults and at least 10 children (this was a maximum amount due to adult/child ratio per ministry standards that was always reached). This program was made available twice monthly.
The afterschool program taught by Liette every Thursday for children aged 3-6 started in sometime during the second semester. Art has been proven to assist with small children’s developmental skills. The step by step art program has helped children recognize shapes and colors. They have demonstrated pride in their work and seem to be amazed how a simple form turns into a new creation. The parents enjoy watching their children encouraged, supported and succeeding. The community has responded well to this program as it has built up 5 regular participants. It is projected that this number will increase with the stability of the program since this program hasn’t been consistent in the past due to booking an available teacher and the Healthy Babies workers maternity leave.
During the March Break, Arts4All hosted two art classes at the Indian Friendship Center. One being the 7 to 12 years old Akwe;go program (taught by Caro) and the second being the 3 to 6 years old Aboriginal Healthy Babies Healthy Children program (taught by Liette). The community was really responsive as both programs together hosted around 35 participants.
