This January, Old Ottawa East artist Steve Fick will be teaching a series of Monday evening classes for beginning and intermediate painters through the Community Activities Group of Old Ottawa East (CAG) at the Old Town Hall.
Steve and his family have lived in Old Ottawa East for over 16 years. His artwork is well known in our community. He has collaborated with local fabric artist Margaret Vant Erve on several art exhibits, including one to help raise funds for the renovation of the Brantwood Field House. He had an exhibit of work at the El Salvadorian café Cuppedia (now Café 97) based on his travels to Ecuador and Costa Rica.

If you are looking to challenge yourself as we go into the New Year, this could be just what you need!
Classes run on Monday and Wednesday evenings at gyms in Lady Evelyn School and Immaculata High School. Full details of the courses are HERE.
A group of interested community volunteers, including community youth, is investigating the possibility of a Youth Park for Old Ottawa East. A site under consideration is Ballantyne Park, a strip of land between Hawthorne Avenue and Highway 417. The goal; to give local teens and young adults a place to get together and enjoy outdoor physical activities.
A recent survey conducted by CAG showed a youth park to be a priority for the residents of OOE.
This group of volunteers is looking to survey youth to see what they would want to see as part of that youth park. Once the results are compiles a full community consultation will be scheduled.
