The artists of the Autumn Leaves Studio Tour are proud to support Hope Haven by raising funds annually during our three-day studio tour. We encourage all visitors on the tour to contribute to our fundraising campaign. Each studio participates differently. Some provide refreshments in exchange for a donation, others will offer a draw for a piece of art, and some studios donate a portion of their sales. Visitors are also welcome to make out a cheque directly to Hope Haven for which they will receive a tax receipt in the mail. You can also lend your support by calling 519-986-1247. To learn more about Hope Haven please read on.
Hope Haven is a special place where individuals with intellectual, physical or emotional challenges can explore their potential in an environment that encourages them to try new experiences while enjoying the learning process.
We connect horses and individuals with challenges to improve physical, emotional and cognitive health in a positive and safe learning environment.
Our equine and therapeutic programs enrich the lives of our participants, their families and our volunteers in a community of hope and healing.
Autumn Leaves Studio Tour Scholarships
In 2005, the artists of the Autumn Leaves Studio Tour created a Scholarship Program, to support emerging artists in area high schools. Each year, scholarships of $100 are given to high schools in Hanover, Mount Forest and Flesherton, awarded at annual commencement ceremonies, primarily to students continuing in post-secondary education in arts related programs.
Students wanting more information on the Autumn Leaves Studio Tour Scholarship Program, should contact their respective Art Department Heads.
