Kits Neighbourhood House Senior's Art Group

The goal of this Art Project is to work with seniors to promote individual artistic endeavors and to develop emotional and spiritual well-being in a supportive art class setting.

We have explored many art related themes using a variety of techniques and materials to enhance the well-being of seniors living on Vancouver’s Westside. This group was a joint endeavor between Artists in Our Midst and Kits Neighbourhood House and is held in the Sunny Senior’s Room at Kits House.

Our group began on October 4, 2012 and we enjoyed ourselves with a few good laughs as we explored new materials and developed confidence as a group. We have experimented with pencils, watercolours, oil pastels, print making using waterbased inks and acrylic paints. Each week our facilitators, Jackie Conradi-Robertson and Joanne Brown photograph our art work and we make beautiful cards on the eighth week.

We have invited our friends in to see 14 Exhibitions and to celebrate our artistic achievements. Our next Exhibition is Thursday, November 30th from 3 - 4pm at Kits House, 2305 W 7th Ave (at Vine), Vancouver.

Since the Fall of 2012 we have had 15 9 week sessions with exhibitions and are planning a 16th session for the New year 2018.
