‘Oh Canada’ Community Canvas with Colette Lisoway

Waterfront Park

Try some printmaking, share your love for Canada, and tell your stories! Come and make your own printing blocks and plates or use some of ours. Work together with other community members to create some fabulous art on a big shared canvas. Wait awhile for the canvases to be further worked, completed and dry, then return to take away a piece of community-created Canada Day art!
