~ a growing and changing community
Since October 2014, LEF has hosted a Newcomer Visual Arts Group called “Without Words”.
Led by Volunteer Instructor Juan Carbonell, a Newcomer himself from Cuba, inspires all who are new to the Visual Arts here in Toronto and new to the English Language. Some have never painted before, while others have not had an opportunity to access professional artists materials before joining this group.
But every Saturday, thanks to Juan and funding provided by the City of Toronto/Toronto Arts Council in partnership with ArtStarts, this group of Newcomer Emerging Artists are well on their way to incorporating Visual Arts into their new lives in Canada!
The group has two upcoming shows and they have chosen “Ecology and the Environment” as their theme. The participating Artists have come from different places throughout the world, but their perspectives to this topic is hauntingly similar.
Everyone is welcome to attend the two events.
The first one will take place June 4th.

Paintings will be on display until June 16th.
