A Wintery Morning To Warm The HeART

Here I stand with volunteer, Lisaura.

Here at the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre I’m showing off details of what creative HeART and minds do regularly.

On this snowy morning a small group of volunteers, myself included, came together to assist the artists from Community Living Oakville.

Students gather around the communal table every Monday morning at 10:00AM sharp! The smell of a wood burning fireplace lingers.

We start with a cup of tea. Then we listen to Sybil outline class instructions. I was asked to read a book today and not just any book. It was a story about color by Dr. Seuss called, “My Many Colored Days.” Everyone listened, learned and shared their thoughts. Then it was time to get on with the assigned tasks in order for the artists to complete their projects from last week.

Today’s assignment was called, “The Sandwich.” As you can see the result was sensational.

This group of artists deserve to show off their work and the community deserves to see it.

My takeaway from today’s lesson was the simplicity of creating authentic HeART connections in community.

The truth is, a simple act of kindness empowers creative minds, supporting risk and experimentation. Today was a good day for all.
