Art during March Break

Art InDeed is hosting a March break program called Creative Discovery for children 4 to 12 years. The program runs on March 17, March 19 and March 20 and focuses on exposure to a variety of art materials and activities and an exploration of arts-based activities. Classes for children ages 4 – 6 will be 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. and classes for students up to 12 years old will be 1:30 to 4 p.m. The cost is $85 plus HST. Art InDeed is located at 1267 Victoria Ave., Windsor.
Being creative has always come naturally to Danah Beaulieu.

So, when her business Art InDeed — Wellness Though Creativity was competing for a $10,000 grant she knew how to step up her game.

“Basically I had to tell the story of Art InDeed,” she said. “We had to talk about what we do and why I’m passionate about this business.”

In her business, which offers holistic arts-based program for people of all ages, she often tells her clients creating is non-verbal. So, she put her advice into practice.

“We made a video and put a bunch of pictures of the staff up, including a sign that said Vote for Art InDeed and then we shared our story visually,” she said. “We didn’t use any words because we wanted it to be touching to those deeper parts of ourselves.”
