The Young@rt youth art exhibit is going virtual this year! Young@rt is a celebration of talented young artists in Kitchener that showcases their work in visual arts. Some of these featured artists, from around Waterloo Region, have been exposed to art programming through Arts4All, a non-profit arm of Artshine. “I am so very proud of all the artists who have submitted their art this year” says Paul Field, Artshine/Arts4All founder. Artshine is a local company and is run as a Social Enterprise; our profits go back into each community that we serve. Our vision is to create a community where participation in the arts is not limited by income, ability or life circumstances.
We would like to thank our amazing Art Instructors! And a huge thank you goes out to City of Kitchener and the local school boards (Waterloo Region District School Board and Waterloo Catholic School District Board) for their support.
