This Thursday, December 18, from 6-9 p.m., SKETCH Open Studio opens their doors to the public for the first time at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw St).


The showcase will highlight the creativity from this fall’s art sessions, and will celebrate rising youth leadership in community arts. Check out the Vocal Jam Choir, pieces by Krafty Queers, the Circles of Influence Project (a collaboration between Canadian Roots Exchange, artists Liz George and Lindsay DuPré, and SKETCH), and work by Community Artists in-Training Cody, Claudinne, Nakisha, Oddane, Kiana & Verity, who have built their own creative portfolios in mediums ranging from jewelry making, illustration, portraiture, video, musical theater, rap, and more.


Drop in and check it out: there’ll be emerging artists exhibiting and selling their work, live music, performances, and much more!

SKETCH is a community-arts-development initiative that engages homeless and on the margins young people ages 16-29, from across Canada.
