    Throughout the year, some of the ArtHeart participants enter their artwork in local and city-wide art contests. Many participants have won awards of distinction as well as monetary prizes.
    ArtHeart’s Computer Lab is very popular and a great resource for our participants of all ages, who otherwise would have no, or very limited, access to computers.

    For over two decades ArtHeart has been a stabilizing presence in the community of Regent Park. We provide free visual arts education, programs, materials and a nutritious meal to children, youth, adults and seniors living in Regent Park and the surrounding neighbourhoods.

    Our mission is to provide participants with a supportive environment in which they can create and learn, build self-esteem and develop life skills. By putting their hands and imaginations to work, our participants are empowered to improve their quality of life.
