The National Gallery of Jamaica (NGJ) is proud to announce that it will be holding the second edition of its workshop programme, WRITIVITY, which begins on Monday, August 8 and will continue until Friday, August 12, 2016. Inaugurated last year, the WRITIVTY workshop is designed for grade 10 and 11 students, who are preparing to sit Visual Arts examinations for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC). The workshop is coordinated by the NGJ’s Education Department and forms part of the Gallery’s summer programme schedule.
The main goal of WRITIVITY is to assist students with the development of a visual arts reflective journal, which is a key component of CSEC’s School Based Assessment (SBA) submission. By participating in WRITIVITY, students will be taught how to properly prepare entries for the journal, analyze art pieces and conduct art related research, within sessions utilize the NGJ’s art collection and document resources.
All activities for the WRITIVITY will be held at the National Gallery of Jamaica from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Persons interested in the workshop should contact the NGJ in order to register. The cost of registration is one thousand dollars ($1000) and due to limited space, applicants are being encouraged to register early.
