Multi-media Painting Workshop

Multi-media Painting Workshop

A friend and I just recently did our first work shop at Bethlehem Housing and Support Services on Thursday. This is just one of the exemplars I made before hand. We did fall themed still life using collage, acrylic paints, and watercolors.

Bethlehem Place is a 27-unit apartment building providing affordable, transitional, supportive housing to people in need in the Niagara Region who wish to make change in their lives. Capacity is about 65 residents.

Bethlehem Place is an ongoing success story. Since it opened in 1988, thousands of women, men and children have lived in the building, and participated in the programs designed to develop skills, stability and confidence to move on to independent living. Residents may live in the building for up to one year.

People come to Bethlehem Place for a variety of reasons such as abuse, homelessness or family breakdown. During their stay residents are given support through individual counselling, support groups and a wide range of life skills workshops.
