DECEMBER CHALLENGE: Wonders of the Season

The meaning of life is to find your gift. 
The purpose of life is to give it away.
Pablo Picasso 

In December we celebrate all the beauty and fun of the holiday season. Be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, the first day of winter or New Year’s eve, we enjoy the gathering of family and friends, the sharing of food and gifts and the joy of the holidays. 

Use your sketch book or paint to create a feeling of the wonder of the season.

November Challenge: IMAGINE

Imagine a world of peace.
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I am not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us 
And the world will live as one.

This pop song and album written by John Lennon is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. It expresses an ancient human longing to live peacefully with each other. This month, show us your artistic expression of Imagine.

Announcing Ontario Trillium Foundation Funding

Your MGA leadership team is pleased to announce that MGA is receiving a grant of $11,300 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund
to help our group rebuild and recover from impacts of COVID-19. With these funds and once pandemic restrictions are lifted, we will secure safe meeting spaces,
where we will live stream workshops and demonstrations with equipment purchased. We will also extend our social media outreach, so we can continue to
increase our membership. Next, our membership registration process will be automated to facilitate information processing and new member orientation. Finally,
we will begin conversations with local art groups to explore opportunities for collaboration.

 MGA extends our sincere thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for its support of our efforts.
