Under Our Skin
Supporting women through art.
Under Our Skin (UOS) is a mixed-media visual and textile art class for women in (or who have experienced) transitional housing. The project explores stability, self-worth and common ground through art-making and is open to women in Simcoe County, Ontario.

Under Our Skin is a weekly art session where various visual and textile art skills are shared and practiced. Watercolours, acrylics, yarn, stitching, screen printing, weaving (integrating both natural and artificial fibres) are all explored within the context of belonging.
Capturing the Creative Process.
Using video and photography we strive to document and share the work of upcoming artists and community events at AIH.

We are excited to continue our partnership with Georgian College exhibiting the work of third year students.
This year’s Georgian College student artist is Yourong Zhao.
Yourong’s artistic “meanderings” weave together ideas, dreams, and experiences from her past and present, recombining them in unique ways through paint.
As an artist, I capture the life, emotions, vitality and warmth of my subjects. This is true whether it’s about the contemplation of nature, or discovering the meaning of life. My symbolic work conveys a subjective, emotional and harmonious response to the natural world. - Yourong Zhao
