To Artistic Way’s team of experienced instructors, a community touched by art becomes a stronger, healthier community. Keeping this philosophy in mind, the staff seeks to unleash the shrink-zapped Monets living in artists of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds via a host of programs that encourage self-expression. Professional artists helm art classes for kids and adults alike, and an ever-changing roster of workshops includes BYOB ladies’ nights and opportunities for intensive independent study. Creative endeavours such as mosaic making and sculpture ensure that Artistic Way’s summer and winter camps capture youngsters’ imaginations, preventing boredom or bouts of nostalgic pencil sharpening. While specializing in painting and drawing, Artistic Way also offers make-your-own jewellery, ceramics, and glass sessions, and a school of animation combines art and entertainment.

It's a concern all too familiar to homeowners: something's gone wrong, and you don't know enough about home repair to be sure that you're not being cheated by contractors who inflate their prices while cutting corners. It was to combat those worries that Harry Felton founded the Homeservice Club above a Toronto grocery store in 1961.
The Homeservice Club offers a unique double guarantee: each of their more than 300 bonded, licensed, and insured contractors will stand behind their work, and if they just can't come through, the Club will. That's why, fifty years out from their founding, the club is a trusted name in home repair of all kinds, from roofing to window repair to chasing bats out bathrooms.

In the winter months, crews can also remove piles of snow before climbing expeditions set up base camp in the driveway.
