*Volunteer/Donation Opportunity* Yorklands Green Hub is calling-out to all ages who like to draw, paint, take photos or create art in any medium: Let Yorklands Green Hub be your inspiration and help us raise money to keep Guelph green!
We are asking for donations of art work, 10 inches by 12 inches OR SMALLER, ready to hang in our exhibition at 42 Carden St that runs from November 2 to 30.
All work should be inspired by visiting our site at the former Ontario Reformatory at 785 York Rd. (Bus route #4 York Rd). Stroll through Guelph’s piece of “country in the city” and create art inspired by our vision for Yorklands Green Hub: a sustainable environmental learning centre.
A silent auction of all work will take place during the month of November. If your work sells, you will receive 20% of the total cost; the rest will go to Yorklands Green Hub to help us with our operating costs.
In search of an art tutor/teacher to travel to our home just outside Guelph in Puslinch to teach art to our young homeschooled children. Their ages are 9,7,6, and 4. Schedule is very flexible. This could be a weekly lesson or bimonthly. In addition to an agreed upon wage, travel time will be compensated and all materials you require can be provided. Looking for someone who can instruct them in the basics of drawing and painting skills as well as some art history. Please contact me to discuss further.
The East Side Library is a branch of the Guelph Public Library, located at 1 Starwood Dr. We are able to provide display space for wall art only on a monthly basis.
Hanging capacity is 10-30 pieces, depending on size. Individuals or groups are welcome to submit a proposal.
Please keep in mind that the work should be suitable for a family-oriented, community space. Artists are responsible for hanging and removing work. There is no charge for this space.
When submitting, please include:
-your full name and email address
-4-8 images of work representative of what you intend to display (per participant, if in a group)
