Illusions & Realities- YESS Fall Art Show

Local artist Claire Uhlick and youth from Youth Empowerment & Support Services (YESS) are excited to present a second art show & sale.

For the past year, funding provided by the Edmonton Arts Council, Simons and Trailblazer RV, has enabled YESS the opportunity to have Claire as our Artist in Residence. Through various projects and activities, Claire has given youth the opportunity to explore various mediums and helped them develop their artistic skills.

This unique program has had an extremely positive impact on many YESS youth. Art therapy has been instrumental in helping them work through difficult experiences and allowed them the opportunity to non-verbally communicate emotions that might otherwise be abandoned from society. Art has helped promote self-expression, personal independence, and encouraged the development of healthy coping strategies for our youth.

During the month of November, we invite you to come and enjoy artwork from our youth as well as Claire's at our fall show.  Artwork will be available for purchase. All proceeds will go directly to the artists.
