GBLT art course

If you're 15-25, queer or queer-friendly, and interested in art, sign up for my course at the Ottawa School of Art. It starts this Tuesday Jan 16, from 7pm-9pm, and it's free.

Did I mention it's free? Absolutely free. Free registration and free art materials. This is an initiative funded by the OSA, Pink Triangle and various other local companies.

You don't have to any experience or aptitude; a desire to learn how to use inks, pastels, acrylic paints and lots of other mediums is all you need.
