The City of Waterloo is embarking on a year-long community art project, entitled ''We Are Waterloo Portrait Project'', which aims to showcase the diversity of faces and talent of Waterloo citizens.
This program will run January - December 2016 with an exhibition taking place in 2017.
The project kicks-off on Saturday, January 23 from 2:30 â€“ 4:30 p.m. at the John M. Harper branch of the Waterloo Public Library. Local artist Heather Franklin will guide participants through the steps of creating a pen and ink sketched portrait.
Participation is free and community members of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
