CORNWALL- Last month, Yaffa Goawily began holding the Cornwall Art Hive. It gives residents a chance to create art, regardless of age. The event occurs once a month, with a maximum of eight participants.

Goawily had previously lived in Montréal, where she initially got the idea to start an Art Hive in Cornwall. “The Art Hive is a gathering for people, you don’t have to be an artist. It’s for anyone,” she says. “You can bring papers, colours and different kinds of materials. We sit together and create art.”

In the past, Goawily had been engaged in projects pertaining to humans rights and worked on art projects with less privileged children. To her, art is therapeutic. Goawily is invested in expanding the Cornwall Art Hive as well encouraging the public to embrace their inner artist.

With cold weather on its way, Goawily is looking to move the event indoors.

She’s hoping that the Hive will occur twice a month. “We’re hoping to add more days,” Goawily says. Art Hive is a free event, although any donations are greatly appreciated.

The Hive takes place at 328 Marlborough St. To stay updated on Goawily’s work and upcoming Cornwall Art Hive sessions, please visit her Facebook page as well as the Hive event page.
