BACKYARD ART PROGRAM 2021

Throughout the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic Journey Through the Arts (JTTA) has continued to adapt its business to include safe and creative ways to keep kids engaged and using their imagination while at home.

The JTTA Backyard Art Program began in the Spring of 2020 and will continue as long as we are unable to hold in-person art workshops.

Each Backyard Art Program is for kids ages 6 to 12 years old and features different themes and projects each month.

Each Backyard Art Program:

- includes all of the art supplies needed for the theme of the art bag,

- includes simple step-by-step instructions for each project, and

- is delivered free to your door in Cobourg and Port Hope (with porch pick-up for other locations) WHEN PROVINCIAL LOCKDOWNS ALLOW.

Price per bag varies depending on the art projects included ($15-$35 per bag plus HST).

Below are a few examples of the past Backyard Art bags.

If this sounds like something you would like to get your child involved in and you would like to receive information about The Backyard Art Program for your child, please email Christine at journeythroughthearts@bellnet.ca or LIKE Journey Through the Arts on Facebook for updates!

Keep safe,
Christine
