for participants to understand and share their thoughts/feelings towards the latest corona virus related events through the learning of different visual arts styles. Each week a new artist’s style will be featured to help participants create original artwork

Urban Arts is hosting Weston Road Flows this weekend (the 23rd and 24th).
A multi-media exhibition that explores the transitory nature of the former city of York through the main arterial road, Weston Road. The exhibition will display the past, present, and future of Weston through new pieces created by local artists. This project will explore the transformation of Weston from its humble beginnings as a village to the multicultural urban area of Toronto that it is today.”
The primary focus will be on a sound installation that incorporates historic recordings of the area and its residents with modern beats created by youth producers from York South-Weston. The stories and sceneries have continually changed in York, but Weston Road has always been a main ‘flow through’ and will continue to do so as the area undergoes even more change and development.
Today is the last day to visit Weston Road Flows, the art and audio installation at UrbanArts’ 5 Bartonville location.
In other news, UrbanArts will soon be reopening in Weston; they picked up the keys this week to their Weston Common Cultural Hub location.
