Arts Etobicoke in partnership with Delta Family Resource Centre is thrilled to present Arts in Wincott Park – a FREE series of arts activities and workshops for the residents of Kingsview Village – Westway community. 

Our aim is to introduce children to simple music concepts and engage them in a way that will spark their creativity. They will make their own percussion instruments from recycled materials followed by rhythm workshops focusing on body percussion, beat perception, movement and composition. This class is for ages 4-9.

 

Camila Lozada is a Peruvian artist inspired in sharing the richness of Latin-American folklore. She has over one year of early childhood music education, and has worked giving music lessons to high risk children in Orphanage Perez Aranibar, Peru. Last year, she collaborated developing the scope and content of 10 weeks of STEM activities in a Summer Enrichment Program based in South Etobicoke. She has performed for Arts Etobicoke Spotlight Etobicoke Concert Series, City Hall Toronto and LAMP to raise funds for Unison Benevolent Fund, an organization that helps artists and music professionals in need.

Luis Anselmi is a Venezuelan cuatro player, pianist, and artist based in Toronto. As a Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation scholar for 6 consecutive years, Luis has had the opportunity to study at Humber College, as well as organize, produce and promote monthly concert series for over 400 students in Prince Edward Island and Ontario. He has assisted The Confederation Centre of the Arts, Holland College and MusicPEI in delivering music programs to all audiences, including children from 5 local schools. Luis enjoys supporting his community and bringing people together through music!
