Every Picture Tells A Story, Ask Artist Ian Grant

2nd Annual HBHAS Art Exhibition Coming Soon!

Had a great time meeting artist Ian Grant on the Danforth, Areej Art Gallery, this past weekend. His solo exhibit, “The Journey” is more than a collection of photographs. His inspirations come from traveling the world. Some images cheeky and others uniquely soulful where the images transcend those influences.

A Wonderful Way To Inspire & Celebrate With Community

A Leisurely Pastime Picnic Coming Soon

Research suggests spending time in a natural setting is good for your mental health. A family picnic is great family time with the kids. It’s also a wonderful tradition to strengthen ties with family and friends too.

Coming soon the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Center is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a family picnic. I’ll be there with my rainbow set of harps to provide an opportunity for anyone interested to have an experience playing the harp.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play the harp? Curious about this ancient musical instrument? Then you’re in for a treat.

Recreational harp music making is healthy and inclusive. It’s based on music activities that bring the community together. Come see for yourself at the JCHAC Family Picnic Sunday, June 10th, 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to come out take part and have fun.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
