MSC Supports Innovative Art Program! MSC Chair Bob Harrick & council are partnering with Visual Arts Mississauga at Riverwood as it launches ARTREACH for Older Adults Program. Designed with

seniors in mind, ARTREACH is a comprehensive visual arts program dedicated to bringing exciting and enriching art experiences to the community. Our program is designed to build confidence and a sense of accomplishment in older adults through the magic of the arts! ARTREACH workshops are adapted to suit small groups of up to 12 participants. Our everchanging workshop choices include watercolours, clay sculpture, printmaking, acrylic and mixed media painting. Each ARTREACH session is 1.5 to 2 hours in duration and can be adapted to suit the needs of participants. Contact Heather Brissenden 905-277-4313 or outreach@visualartsmississauga.com .
