Explore Your Artistic Side at UJA's Bottles & Brushes

On March 27, 2014, at Qlix Studioz, UJA’s Community Connect is bringing Toronto’s young professional community together to explore their artistic side through an Israel-inspired paint night.

“Bottles & Brushes” will blend three timeless pastimes; art expression, great conversation and wine.

Tickets ($30) will go towards covering all art materials (brushes, paint, canvas, etc.) and one complimentary drink ticket.

“This event is a great way to bring the community together with a unique opportunity to socialize and be creative,” says Jill Burkes, Co-Chair of event. “It will also provide the community with a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge and networks.”

“Additionally,” she adds, “we will be subsidizing art kits to be sent to Israel with Taglit-Birthright Israel Canada Israel Experience, which will then be given to underprivileged students.”

A chance to be creative, paint, drink wine, and do something good for the vulnerable students in Israel. Enough said.

In addition, local artists will teach guests how to paint their own beautiful canvas, ‘stroke by stroke.’ Through careful instruction, guests will recreate a symbolic painting affiliated with Judaism and Israel.

“As young adults, we are striving to help develop a commitment to charity, unity, and community engagement within our peer group and ourselves,” says Burkes. “This is a team-building event for people to work together in creating a special memory and a piece of art.”

The event will also feature a raffle, with exciting prizes to be won, she adds. If you’re an art aficionado, or simply looking for a fun night on the town where you can meet like-minded individuals, Bottles & Brushes seems like an ideal scenario.
