Art Workshop Poster

Art helps people to get to know each other.

JUNE 27, 2018

A group of Immigrant and Community Seniors met at McNabb Community Centre – to spend a few hours making art and socializing. The room was full of energy and happiness.

The objective of the workshop was to create a visual introduction that would help everyone to introduce themselves and help remember each other’s name.

Organized by Catholic Centre for Immigrants (CCI) as a part of Welcoming Ottawa Week 2018 Ottawa Local Immigration Partnership (OLIP).

A multicultural watercolour painting for Seniors, led by visual artist and CCI volunteer Iwona Buziak-Mohamed.

You don’t have to be an artist to find your voice through ART. You don’t even have to speak the same language. Art is a universal Language.
