YOUNG AT ART 2022
Young at Art began 26 years ago at the Kanata Civic Art Gallery, and has grown into a city-wide event, with the participation of youth artists from east, west, and central Ottawa. Their annual Call to Young Artists typically generates hundreds of submissions from approximately 60 Ottawa-area schools, and is held in early spring every year.
Due to Covid-19, Young at Art 2021 was held virtually. We are hopeful that for 2022, the programme will be held live. To learn more, visit the Young at Art website at www.ottawa.ca/youngatart and follow their Instagram page @youngatartott.
The application/guidelines for young artists interested in applying for 2022 will be forthcoming.
KANATA GALLERY AT KANATA NORTH PICNIC
The Annual Kanata North Summer Picnic has always been a great place for the Gallery to reach out to the community. This annual event has brought the community together—on a magnificent green space—to enjoy culture, food, music and more. In the past we have held painting and carving sessions for adults and children alike, while enjoying great conversations with the visiting public. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for 2022’s Kanata North Summer Picnic, usually held in either July or August.
