  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of VAM's Summer Art Camp

    our take

    With over 200 courses, workshops, and camps, Visual Arts Mississauga (VAM) is a premier organization for art education, art exhibition, and community engagement. Located in an urban area on a 150-acre natural property featuring forests, meadows, and a river, the grounds are a spectacular—and even magical—spot to learn about visual arts. Having been around for over 45 years, VAM is a leader in the community. The instructors are a diverse bunch of renowned artists, with specialities ranging from textiles, sketching, watercolour, and so much more. Everything is taught cooperatively with a structured lesson that allows for students to bring out their own creativity. What’s unique about the programs here is that there is a huge focus on art as therapy and for healing, something that is definitely needed today. The Creative Children’s Fund is a step in the right direction towards healing, as VAM fundraises to give kids free summer camp at their facility.
