Christine Benson of Journey Through the Arts in Port Hope is once again looking for young Northumberland County artists between the ages of 6 and 13 to participate in the INSPIRE Children’s Art Exhibition being held at The Journey Through The Arts Gallery from May 3-25, 2014.
The INSPIRE Exhibition grew out of the need and desire to recognize the creativity, talent and imagination of our area’s young people. Coinciding with National Youth Arts Week this exciting free exhibition is intended to both encourage and nurture the imaginations and abilities of our kids! It will give your child the opportunity to showcase their artwork in a professional exhibition and to view, appreciate and have their work displayed alongside the work of The JTTA Gallery’s established adult artists. On Saturday, May 3 from 1:00-3:00 patrons of the arts are invited to view the artwork.
Anyone interested in participating is asked to drop off artwork at The Journey Through the Arts Gallery (27 Walton St. Second Floor, Port Hope) on Saturday April 26 between 11:00 and 5:00pm. For more information please contact JTTA at (905) 885-0908 or email email@example.com

Journey Through the Arts, run by artist Christine Benson, and musician Mike Woods is a multi-faceted arts organization in Port Hope, Ontario which is dedicated to bringing a variety of exciting programmes to adults and children. Founded as a way to ensure "the arts" (music, art and drama) are an integeral part of children's lives JTTA offers week long summer programmes throughout July and August at a restored mill along the Ganaraska River. The summer programme, which was founded in 2002, teaches children (between the ages of 6 and 13) about the value and importance of using their creativity and imagination while they produce visual art, perform original musical compositions and perform short plays. The results are both inspiring and humbling as the children gain confidence and learn various skills throughout the week.
From its roots as a children's arts organization Journey Through the Arts (JTTA) has blossomed and grown into a place where adults and children alike can experience the limitless possibilities of the arts. JTTA now offers after school, weekend and specialty art workshops for children, private guitar lessons, a group recording facility and adult visual art workshops which are dedicated to exposing adults (with various levels of experience) to the fine arts.
In the summer of 2005 JTTA opened the doors of the The Journey Through the Arts Gallery which focuses on giving exhibition opportunities to local and regional artists and artisans. The JTTA Gallery offers visitors a glimpse into the ideas, practises, techniques and work of 15 artists. The gallery features a variety of media including painting, printmaking, jewelry and pottery. Exhibitions and artists are ever-changing with work that is sure to inspire the artist within all of us.
