A live online follow-along paint night, where the subject of the painting is food related. Using any materials the participants have around the house, or can get at a craft or dollar store if they feel comfortable doing so. The participants will follow along step by step painting, and are encouraged to enjoy with friends and family (from a social distance), drinks, snacks, and good vibes are also encouraged. In the end the goal is to have a completed painting, and some fun memories.
Get to know us:
Megan, Deborah, Zareena, Guilene, and Agerh are very determined and compassionate students. Due to COVID-19, moving this whole campaign to the virtual world was quite the challenge. However, with their creative minds and with the help of the other amazing classmates and professors, we as a team strongly believe that we will put in all efforts to make this work and help the Ottawa Food Bank. To ensure team collaboration and cooperation, we have scheduled zoom calls every Tuesday at 1:45pm and all members who are able to attend must participate. With a team of bright minds and love, we will put compassion in Crave Compassion.
Let’s know a little more about each one of us-
