Sketch pad

Art for everyone, I say!!

While some in positions of power (who shall remain nameless, ahem) consider art frivolous, others like SKETCH see it as a tool for change. The Toronto-based org (which may be familiar to you via the annual Blundstone boot-defacing fundraiser or Ad Lounge’s Art from the Unexpected event, happening tonight) works with homeless and street-involved youth aged 15 to 29, giving them a place for painting and drawing, woodworking, silkscreening and print making, music, sewing, photography, computer access – even kung fu.
