Media Advisory: Reception showcases youth art in action in the Jane-Finch community
The City of Toronto will host an art exhibit and reception to showcase the artistic achievements of young people between the age of eight and 19, who participated in two Art in Action youth projects in the Jane-Finch community - Digital Discovery and Sculpture Workshops.

Date: Tuesday, June 12
Time: 5 p.m.
Place: JVS Toronto, 1911 Finch Ave. W., Unit 3

In Digital Discovery, participants combined traditional methods of photography with the use of digital cameras and advanced digital software to create images that reflect the building, landscapes and places that form their neighbourhood. Participants in Sculpture Workshops drew inspiration from Carnival traditions around the world and their own imaginations to create their own Carnival character masks.

Art in Action youth projects for the Jane-Finch community are a partnership between Toronto Culture, Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, Arts for Children of Toronto, JVS Toronto and the Jane Finch Mall. Since 2005, Toronto Culture has developed and supported a series of community arts programs in the Jane-Finch community in support of Toronto’s Community Safety Plan - Neighbourhood Action. Arts programming will continue in the community with printmaking and clay construction workshops scheduled for the fall.
