Summer Art Experience for Youth

Street Art 2018 Recap Video from the ESBGC’s YouTube channel.

Since 2013, Boys & Girls Club of East Scarborough has partnered with Street Art Toronto and artist Amir Akbari to create vibrant and impactful murals in the KGO community.  The program provides hands-on training and experience for aspiring youth artists while engaging community members in the creation of public murals. 

Check out our recap video (created by Emily Santos) from our 2018 project at 4205 Lawrence Ave.  (On the southeast corner of Morningside & Lawrence).  This project was in partnership with Toronto Community Housing, Behind the Line, Street Art Toronto and the City of Toronto, with special thanks to Home Depot. 

We will be recruiting youth artists for next year’s project starting in January 2019, if you are interested in joining please email Amir at aakbari@esbgc.ca to learn more.
