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.

Make this your summer destination to drop in and discover something new and exciting!!! A dynamic opportunity to learn more about the artists and their body of work. All stunning and unique.
Meet Amber our first young artist selected to participate and share her work this summer at the HBHAS Art Exhibition. Location: Halton Hills Cultural Centre Town of Halton Hills 9 Church St., Halton Hills ON. See you there 🙂
See her work on display from July 9th – September 2. Congratulations Amber!!!
Another successful Happy Harping workshop!!! This time Halton Harps was harping with the Girl Guides in Smithville.
Split into three groups we rotated through the rainbow set of harps. Each group learned how to play a familiar song.
Fusing music with arts and crafts the girls have an opportunity to explore musical sounds and rhythms by using their creativity and imagination.
Best of all we’re inclusive. All participants learn to play their part in the music making process. Facilitating from the Rainbow of Sound or Color My World music programs makes it easy for children to learn the fundamentals of music in an environment that encourages growth and personal development.
Benefits of Harp Playing
“Recreational Music-making (RMM) encompasses enjoyable, accessible and fulfilling group music-based activities that unite people of all ages, regardless of their challenges, backgrounds, ethnicity, ability or prior experience.
From exercise, nurturing, social support, bonding and spirituality, to intellectual stimulation, heightened understanding and enhanced capacity to cope with life’s challenges, the benefits of recreational music-making extend far beyond music. Recreational music-making ultimately affords unparalleled creative expression that unites our bodies, minds and spirits”
