ABOUT US

Established in May 2014, Social Art was the first of it's kind to the Kitchener-Waterloo area.

We believe that each person has artistic ability which can be brought out in a fun, relaxing atmosphere which we seek to create at each and every Social Art event. From paint nights on canvas and wood, to wreath classes and jewelry making workshops, we love to dive into all different ways of creating art! We offer public events in our Kitchener studio as well as in select local venues or even in your home. We are also happy to provide exceptional private events, which can take place in our studio, local venue or in your home.

Our Instructors

Lisa is the owner of Social Art. As a child, Lisa loved drawing and all things crafty. As an adult, she dove into art in a different way by pursuing makeup artistry, both in beauty makeup and theatrical/special effects makeup. She traded in the makeup brushes for paint brushes when she discovered Social Art. She quickly became addicted to the feeling of holding a paint brush and the fulfillment of creating something beautiful on canvas. Lisa is excited to continue on the amazing service Social Art has always been known for. She loves more than anything, how this business brings people together in a new and exciting way, and how art can have the ability to encourage relationships, self-confidence, laughter and even healing.

Stephanie has always immersed herself in the arts. She has had a passion for art since childhood and carried it throughout her life. From drawing her own pictures in the backs of colouring books as a child, taking painting lessons at the young age of 11, to taking any and every art related class in high school. Even searching for that perfect career as an adult where she could utilize her passion and talent. She is a proud mother of two fantastic little boys and has spent the last few years focusing on family.When the opportunity to work for Social Art came to her she couldn't have been happier or more excited. She looks forward to sharing her talent with others, getting back into painting herself, and helping Social Art customers find their inner artist!

Sam has had a paintbrush in her hand since she was able to hold one. Growing up, she fell in love with the work of Bob Ross, recreating his paintings and crafting worlds of her own on canvas. Her love of nature and fantasy is visible in her personal art, and while these are her most prominent subjects, she continues to experiment with different subjects, media, and techniques. Sam believes that challenge leads to change, and is constantly looking for ways to grow, both personally and professionally. By day, Sam works with special needs children. She encourages her students to express themselves through art, to think creatively, and to learn fearlessly. She brings this same philosophy to her work at Social Art, because painting is for everyone, and everyone can paint!

Rebecca loves anything and everything to do with art! She is always sketching and painting, or playing piano in her spare time. Her favourite things to paint are landscapes. Her talent, fun personality, and caring attitude make her the perfect person to instruct at our kid's parties! She loves working with children, and seeing their creativity and confidence grow! The thing Rebecca loves most about Social Art is seeing how each painting turns out a little different. She loves seeing people infuse their own personality into their artwork!

The Roatan Project

Steve, Lisa, and a few of the children from our first visit to the Majken Broby Children’s Home in Roatan, back in 2011.

Steve, Lisa, and a few of the children from our first visit to the Majken Broby Children’s Home in Roatan, back in 2011.

In 2011, my husband Steve and I travelled to Roatan, Honduras while on a cruise. Before we left home, we discovered the Majken Broby Children’s Home, and made plans to visit while we were on the island. We arrived at the home in the morning, and did not want to leave! We definitely left a piece of our hearts there with those children.

Since then, we have been back to the orphanage two more times, and have stayed in touch while here in Canada. It has long been on our hearts to help in some way, and Social Art has given us the strategy to do so!

We are often asked, “What do you do with all of the paintings the instructors have painted?” Well here is the answer!! We are selling them, with ALL of the proceeds going towards The Roatan Project.

Funds will go towards basic needs of the children’s home, such as food, clothing and school uniforms, tuitions, and books, as well as general repairs and upkeep of the home. Our long term plan, is to complete the construction of a building next to the orphanage and turn it into a trade school to teach practical skills needed to secure jobs.
