The Fine Arts Society of Milton is a non-profit, member-supporting, volunteer-operated organization in the Milton area, just west of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The Society has grown to include sculptors, metal artists, wood sculptors, ceramic workers, fabric art creators, book illustrators, authors, glass painters, rug makers, jewellers, enamel workers, mosaic tile makers, potters, stained glass creators as well as painters in various mediums.
Many of our artists are professionals and their work is displayed in countless private and public collections.
The membership frequently engages in community-based projects and has benefited greatly from its associations with many other organizations in the Town of Milton.
Commitment to the Community:
provides the growing and diverse Milton community with opportunities to become more knowledgeable about the visual arts, and also to participate in community events such as Culture Days;
has developed and delivered activities for all ages and skill levels through workshops (eg. Youth Visual Arts Mentoring Program (YVAMP)) and is committed to increasing its capacity to further nurture artistic growth;
YVAMP is in its 5th year mentoring youth ages 13 to 17 years old, where they create new work as they learn from skilled teachers; their new creations are then displayed in the Holcim Gallery for 3 weeks;
spearheaded the planning of the gallery and studios for the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton; several FASM members are still actively involved in the operations of the Holcim (Art) Gallery there;
created the Pan Am Mural in 2015 which is installed at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre (Velodrome) and in 2017 created the mural entitled “Milton’s Nature Warms the Soul” (8ft x 33ft) for the foyer of the Milton District Hospital.
