Girls Art League will collaborate with social worker Kristina. Kristina specializes in geriatric care, Girls Art League is a new organization dedicated to the creative development of women and girls in Toronto. The workshop will cater to a wide range of artistic and physical abilities. The workshop will be open to women, or non-gender conforming people of all ages, from children to the elderly. Each participant will create a small mosaic piece that reflects their ideas and experiences with feminism. The mosaics will then be pieced together to create a larger work. This work will be installed in public space yet to be determined. There will be a strong emphasis on concept development, and demonstrating how one needn’t know how to draw to make art. Our intention is make art as accessible as possible, and creating a comfortable open environment where participants can talk openly about their own experiences as women and as artists.

Girls Art League
Founded in 2014, Girls’ Art League (GAL) is a Toronto-based arts organization with the mission of empowering girls and women through the visual arts. Girls of all artistic abilities, socio-economic backgrounds, and lived experiences should have the opportunity to develop and exercise their artistic voice. We believe that this artistic voice and an empowered creative practice are cultivated when we connect, share and learn from each other.
