Water For Life Children and Adolscent Art Workshops is open to all youth living in the City of Niagara Falls.  It seeks to engage children and teens through art to bring to light the importance of clean drinking water in our lives today, and to protect it in the future. This program is presented by renowend Canadian artist Antoine Gaber through support from a Niagara Falls Arts & Culture grant.  There is a $10 fee for each participant, payable to Water For Life through PayPal (accepts credit cards also), and a completed registration form must be sent to Water For Life.  Registration will be finalized once the fee and form are received.

Objective: Sensitize children to the role they play in protecting water as an essential element of life, demonstrated through artistic expression.  Local artists will engage youth's natural curiosity of nature and their interpreation of environmental awareness of what water means to them, through fun artistic coaching.  10-12 works will be selected by an independent jury to represent Niagara Falls at an exhibit in Florence, Italy, at the "World Day for the Rights of Children".  All works will be on exhibit at the Niagara Falls Public Library and Niagara Falls Art Gallery in Fall 2019.
