Ontario ARC Celebrates the Solar Eclipse!

On August 21st folks at Ontario ARC enjoyed the opportunity to partake in the Solar Eclipse- an exciting historic and nationwide event. In the Creative Expressions Art Program, artists watched live footage of the excitement across the country and spent time painting what they were seeing. Going outdoors at the peak of the eclipse while looking through special solar glasses, the sun looked much like a crescent moon— evoking comments of “Wow, I see it!” and “I’ve never seen anything like that before!” –- but from most of us, it produced silence in sheer awe and amazement at what we were having the opportunity to witness. This day was surely one we will never forget!
