We are delighted to share that from Wednesday, July 2 until Friday, October 24, 2014 the Elizabeth Fry Society Sudbury Branch, with the support of a United Way Community Grant, will be offering a weekly Open Arts Studio program for women over 18 who access services through or at the society.



We hope the Open Arts studio will become a safe space that fosters creativity while encouraging experimentation, personal growth, discussion, and self-expression. Participants will have the opportunity to explore various art materials, learn different art techniques, and work on their own self-directed and collaborative art projects.

The program will be facilitated in-house on Wednesday afternoons at the society on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
Participants in the community will be asked to reserve their spot each week. Day of drop-ins will we able to participate if space becomes available.

On Friday mornings, a mobile Open Arts Studio kit will be brought over to the Sudbury District Jail so that the program can be offered to the women in custody.

Customized outreach workshops for agencies and organizations that support women who have experienced criminalization are also available.

Contact the Open Arts Studio Coordinator, Cait Mitchell, for further details.
