Thanks to the support of the Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary Club, the Healing Arts for Kids program is returning to the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre.

Coming up on its fourth year, Healing Arts for Kids offers free in-studio and virtual summer art programs for disadvantaged children and youth in the Niagara Region.

Jeannie Manning, of the NOTL Rotary Club, presented a cheque for $4,000 to the Pumphouse to help fund the program.

Arts centre director Rima Boles thanked Rotary for its donation and noted, "The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre is very appreciative of everything they do for our community."

This summer, the Pumphouse will offer art camp programs to children and youth, ages 6 to 12. Students will explore different art mediums through projects in drawing, painting, sculpture and more.

Organizations, schools, teachers, or principals that would like to nominate a child to participate in the program can contact
