Bring your own fabric or use our Canada Games theme colours. If you’d like to contribute fabric bring any colour or patterned material that won’t bleed when wet. You can match the Canada Games theme colours or free style your own favourite colours.

  1. Just thought I would let you know that a prior collaborative art piece was done and submitted to the city before Christmas. It was an artist-led banner project commissioned specifically for the oval with various schools in the Spryfield area created in October and November. The students all worked hard screen printing, painting, designing and would love to see their work displayed, I’m sure! Thanks!
