Visual Arts for Children with Cerebral Palsy
Campbell, Renaud Trial Lawyers is pleased to be sponsoring a free, inclusive and adaptive art program for people of all ages and abilities in Burnaby, BC. Organized by the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC, Expressive Arts is an opportunity for people with disabilities to explore and express themselves through visual art, led by a qualified teacher and experienced expressive arts therapist (Heather Korlak). A different medium will be introduced each week but the goal will remain the same: to connect with other members of the CP community through a positive, artistic outlet.
Campbell, Renaud Trial Lawyers has been involved with the Cerebral Palsy Association for fifteen years. Lawyer Don Renaud is a longtime volunteer, previously serving as CPABC Board Member. He facilitated the Association’s move from New Westminster to downtown Vancouver in the mid-2000s and continues to offer his time as a volunteer adviser. The firm will be a Presenting Sponsor of the CP Association of BC’s “Life Without Limits” Gala in March 2016 for the second year in a row.
Join the CPABC and friends on Wednesdays from 5:15 – 6:15 PM at Artists Helping Artists (7724 Royal Oak Avenue, MAP), an inclusive and fully accessible arts cooperative, running until December 2nd. This complimentary, drop-in class is an excellent opportunity for children, students, teens, and parents to explore creatively in a fun, safe, and non-judgmental environment. Art materials are supplied.
