What do Noel Harding, Eldon Garnett, Barbara Klunder and students of Alpha Alternative School have in common? They use play and creativity to learn and develop, and... they are donating work for an art auctionto raise money to enhance art programs at Alpha.

More and more families are seeking alternatives in schooling for theirchildren. The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) is warming up tothe idea as the are opening more alternative schools. Alpha, one of Toronto's oldest alternative schools, has a unique approach to schooling. Not quite a one room schoolhouse, but children from JK through to grade six often learn and play together. Children direct their own learning through projects of their own initiative.

Saturday, June 2nd, Alpha is hosting an Art Auction at the Cameron House. Many Toronto artists have brought their kids to Alpha. Artists and designers donating their work include Eldon Garnett, Barbara Klunder, Noel Harding, Maureen Paxton, Doug Gilchrist, John Leonard, Mike Bayne, Don Cavin, Janine Lindgren, Kingi Carpenter of Peach Berserk, Jamie Bennett, Alex Wittholz, and Julian Finkel of Model Citizen.
