Creativity Never Quits

Just because you can’t walk through the doors of our Centre, doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected.  We’re working on collecting resources for our students and families so you always have a place to go when you need to find something to satisfy the thirst for creativity!

From visual arts, to music for children, dance and theatre, we hope there’s something for everyone!

Do YOU have a great idea to share?  Email David at
