My House...Digital Drawings of Kids' Dream Homes

We're excited to hear artist and architect Em Cheng talk about her exhibit of digital drawings at the Bloor/Gladstone Library tonight Thurs May 17 at 6:30pm. 1101 Bloor Street West, Toronto. Free admission

In My House...., Em visually renders children's dream homes with the "seriousness and earnestness afforded to any adult-conceived design proposal".  The result is delightful and - as part of a visit to one of Toronto's most beautiful libraries - will make for an inspired spring evening.

Roisin, age 4

My house is... a red and white house with windows and carrots on the roof... lots of bricks... windows made of sticks and they would be triangles, very yellow.

Cooper Original

Brothers Cooper, age 7 and Anderson, age 9

My house is... Pink plastic with lollipops all over it... a trampoline floor... rock climbing walls... and raining candy.

A giant gummy bear would live next door.
