Oakville Art Society: The Early Years
Oakville Art Society and the Community
The Oakville Art Society has relied on help and donations from those in the community. Whether it was a donation of materials for renovations or donation of time, OAS could not be where it is today without the help of others. Because OAS has an understanding of what it means to need support from the community they in-turn have gone on to 'pay-it-forward' by donating to many causes in the Oakville and surrounding area. As well as donating to charities and organizations in the community, OAS also has donated scholarships and classes to art students in the Oakville area.
