Breaking Illusions

Art Show & Sale

Help YESS celebrate the accomplishments of our youth!

The Closing Reception is tonight, Friday May 16 from 6pm-8pm at the Nina Haggerty Arts Centre!


For the past six months, youth at the Armoury Resource Centre (ARC) have had the opportunity to learn from local artist Claire Uhlick as part of the Artist in Residence Program, graciously funded by the Edmonton Arts Council and Trailblazer RV, and supported by Simons. While also working on her own art in her ARC studio, Claire has explored all types of artistic mediums with the youth, providing them with a creative outlet and a chance to explore hidden talents.


The Breaking Illusions Art Show and Sale is a wonderful opportunity for Claire and the youth to proudly present their work and for the community to appreciate the art created at Youth Empowerment & Support Services. All proceeds of sales go directly to the artists.
