For over 25 years, Quest Art School + Gallery has been committed to bringing arts and culture to the north Simcoe community.
This has been done through our exhibitions, art classes and workshops for people of all ages – ranging from preschool to seniors. We also strongly believe in the impact and value that art and culture has on our community in many other ways.
We offer the only programme in Midland available for Alzheimers patients and their caregivers. We partner with Waypoint Mental Health Services, North Simcoe Youth Wellness Hub and Community Living Huronia – offering their clients the chance to develop creativity, expression and enjoy companionship with others.
We provide curriculum-based outreach programmes to all the school boards in this area and we regularly participate in events that take place in Midland, Tiny, Tay and Victoria Harbour. Overtime, we have evolved from primarily providing hands on visual arts instruction to being an organization using visual arts as a means of social advancement contributing to the well being of our community.
Quest Art recognizes the importance that art and culture plays in the civic, political, social, economic and environmental lives of a community. We believe in the significance of art and culture as a means of social engagement and connection, providing benefits that affect individuals mentally, emotionally and physically. The activities and partnerships that we undertake provide multiple benefits including economic and downtown revitalization, combatting social isolation, inclusive opportunities for marginalized communities, greater opportunities for volunteerism, ensuring that youth are represented and have participatory opportunities for involvement. We believe in the power of art to change our world for the better.
