Artists needed for workshop series

The West Shore Arts Council, in partnership with the M’akola Housing Society, is seeking artists to lead the Family Art Studio program.

The West Shore Arts Council, in partnership with the M’akola Housing Society, is seeking artists to lead the Family Art Studio program, a family-friendly art making series with the aim of bringing individuals together through a creative and collaborative process.

Instructors are needed for two workshops, scheduled for Sept. 15 and 22, that will be offered to M’akola residents.

Artists are invited to submit a proposal detailing their background and the project they would like to lead the group in.

Each workshop will accommodate 35 to 40 residents and art projects must be designed as a collaborative activity for families to participate in. Material costs will be covered by the West Shore Arts Council and the M’akola Housing Society.

These workshops will be held in a sheltered outdoor area and organizers ask that artists consider that when submitting a proposal for the art making project.

Orangizers also ask that anyone interested, submit a proposal as soon as possible.

For more information and proposal criteria go to westshorearts.org/event.php?id=273.
