Saturday Art-Time, the National Gallery of Jamaica’s premier child art programme resumed its second term, on Saturday, January 13, 2018 and will run until March 24, 2018.
Coordinated for youngsters from ages 8 to 15 years old, Saturday Art-Time is a weekly series of art-making workshops. It seeks to provide an opportunity for its young participants to immerse themselves into the world of art and art-making, within the environment of the National Gallery of Jamaica, the largest public art museum in the English-speaking Caribbean. The programme has been highly subscribed by its participants and their families, as well as by school groups from a variety of social backgrounds.
Staple art-making offerings for this term will include drawing, painting, assemblage, collage and animation. The workshops are being offered free of charge and will be held every Saturday morning from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the National Gallery. The Saturday Art-Time programme is funded by the Culture, Health, Arts, Sports and Education fund (CHASE). Registration forms are available at the National Gallery.
