We are hosting our second annual art auction fundraiser at OCAD U, in support of Girls' Art League. We have so many amazing artists participating, we are over the moon.

If you'd like to submit work, we have an open call until November 10th. Please email admin@girlsartleague.com for more info.

Girls’ Art League (GAL) is a Toronto-based art centre with the mission of empowering girls and women through the visual arts. Girls of all artistic abilities, socio-economic backgrounds, and lived experiences should have the opportunity to develop and exercise their artistic voice. We believe that this artistic voice and an empowered creative practice is cultivated when we connect, share, and learn from each other.

We provide the knowledge and resources for girls and women (GALs) to develop their artistic practice, express themselves visually, and build artistic confidence - all within a safe and supportive environment. Our team of artists and educators teach a variety of 2D, 3D, and time-based mediums, and present direct connections to successful female artists working today. GAL offers these teaching through regular 8-week courses, workshops, artist talks, self-directed learning programs, and mentorship programs. We are dedicated to building a vital community of girls and women interested in the arts in Toronto.

We are looking to continue the programming that was so successful last year. We would like to reach out to further social service organizations, and offer art education to women and girls who otherwise would not have access to such programming. Last year we offered workshops to Sheena’s Place (women affected by eating disorders), Gilda’s Club (women affected by cancer), Working Women Community Centre, Central Toronto Youth Services and other such organizations. We would like to expand this program, as well as provide weekly courses for women and girls. These programs, and rent for a space to host weekly courses are costly, and your art donations will help make this all possible!
