This past September, through our partnership with New Hope Fellowship, we launched an art program in the St. James Town called KIC: Art Academy. In Art Academy, the kids are able to learn art techniques and apply them during various activities giving them the opportunity to express themselves creatively, while in a safe and encouraging environment. It is worth mentioning that the kids love painting! They REALLY LOVE painting!
Art Academy has enabled us to reach out to a new demographic in the community. Through the activities and art projects, we are able to use the art to share God's truths to the kids. It has been a very exciting experience every Wednesday and we are very blessed by our partnership with New Hope Fellowship!
On December 10th, there will be an Art Showcase of their final pieces at New Hope Fellowship Church (455 Huron St).
