Date and time

This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.



Brampton, ON



Offered in English, French.


The digital art demonstration is a step-by-step instruction on using recycled materials readily available at home, such as cosmetics, organic materials, and coffee. The art supplies would include items that are no longer in use, and yet their dumping can add to the deterioration of the land and water bodies, such as expired cosmetics. Therefore, this event activity becomes a memorable and unique experience that allows individuals to spark their creativity without much hassle. It will be a refreshing change from the multitude of art supplies options available in the market. The takeaway from this event would be that the individuals who enjoy art but find art supplies expensive can explore other options. One of the prime aims of this activity is to create something aesthetic and protect the environment from dumping damage. The final artwork is going to be shown at the end.
