Artists invited to get involved in Pan Am project

Mural Routes, an arts service organization supporting mural artists and communities through teaching, learning and sharing initiatives, is holding a workshop series encouraging community involvement with the upcoming Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.

Faces of the Community / Las Caras de la Comunidad, in partnership with Toronto 2015 Ignite and the Toronto Arts Council, will be held at St. Aidan’s Church, 70 Silver Birch Ave., on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Feb. 7, 8, and 28, and March 1, 7, and 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. The workshops will teach portrait photography, large-scale stencil design, creation and printing.

Following the workshops, the designs will be printed onto outdoor spaces in the community. Local business and property owners who would like to have a mural installed on their walls are encouraged to contact Mural Routes.

To register for the workshops, email with your name and phone number. Registration is open to all aged 14 and up, at any skill level. Program instruction is free, but there is a $15 materials fee. For more information visit the website.

My son is almost 12 and an artist. Would it be possible for him to participate on February 28th at one of your workshops? Given that he will be participating in the opening Pan Am ceremonies on July 10, 2015, it might be extra special for him to contribute to our community’s initiative? Please let me know. Thanks, Kim
