With all Kawartha Art Gallery youth programming on hold due to COVID-19 pandemic safety protocols, what the future of the Gallery’s Summer Art Camp youth programming would look like was a concern for the gallery.

But the gallery has received support from amazing partners, according to a media release, to assist it in moving forward in continuing to serve the youth of the community with innovative and accessible programming.

With the generous sponsorship provided by The Optimist Club of Lindsay, the gallery is excited to announce that Kawartha Art Gallery will launch, three daily free sessions of virtual art programming starting July 26 until July 30.

Each day, one session for each of the age ranges of five to seven years old, eight to 10 years old and 11 to 13 years old will be available through Kawartha Art Gallery’s website at

Along with the support of The Optimist Club of Lindsay and the funding support of the Employment and Social Development Canada Summer Jobs 2021 program, the gallery will see three students hired to implement the online youth programming under a mentorship program that will provide the youth with the opportunity to further develop their digital, teamwork, communication, and leadership skills.

Now more than ever, Kawartha Art Gallery remains dedicated to advancing a healthy rural creative economy through engaging art and cultural programs and services.
