Art and Holiday Engagement for Families
Story Quilt Making for Spring
Sunday, April 2, 10:00am - 3:00pm
In the quilt project, children will express their family and the upcoming spring holiday season. Incorporating mixed media techniques of drawing and collage with quilting techniques of piecework and stitching, children will create individual mini four-square quilts. If desired, each of the four squares includes one of the four letters from the Hebrew alphabet in the word that means “love”, and a drawing that represents a particular aspect of their love for their parent or care giver. An alternate design could be rendering images of Canadian Spring.

Paper House Making for a Father's Day Gift
Sunday, June 11, 10:00am - 3:00pm
With a simple square piece of colour card stock, students learn the basic architecture of a house. Add gabled window, cobbled roof and images of the family peering through. This personalized image of the home is an ideal gift for father's day. About the instructor: Judy Pisano is an early graduate of OCAD and a popular founding Angels artist who integrates influences from our world masters using construction paper, batik and textiles that transform into fish, kites and the human figure in motion. Almost every Toronto public school has enjoyed an artist residency with Judy Pisano.
Unless otherwise specified by a program director or within any other documentation, the following cancellation policy and JCC Credit timetable applies to all Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs:

Due to the costs and booking commitments associated with short-term programs, we regret that we cannot offer any JCC Credit for programs, classes, or events that meet fewer than three times per programming season. Additionally, The Schwartz/Reisman Centre cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for programs missed as a result of personal scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control. If you are unable to attend a program in this category, we encourage you to consider your registration fee a form of support for the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, helping to sustain wonderful programs.

Registration for Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs closes one week before the start date of a course. For some classes we accept registrations until the program has reached 50% of its classes.
We recommend registering as early as possible, as many programs have limited space, and other programs depend upon a certain enrollment number to ensure they will run. Your place in a program can only be guaranteed when accompanied by payment.
