The Department of Education, under the sponsorship of the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), will be facilitating a free arts workshop for teachers and community organization leaders. The Art training sessions will take place two days a week, beginning Wednesday, April 16th – Friday, June 6th, 2008 from 5-7p.m.
Under the theme, Art in Motion Project 2008. The workshop will concentrate on jewellery making, drawing, bead craft, coconut craft, painting, papier mache and pottery.
“The Art program is dedicated to teachers and community leaders who wish to pass on the knowledge of art work to young people. Not every child is academic and we at the Education Department believe that for some young people creative art can be an alternative way of expressing oneself,” says Project Coordinator, Mrs. Janet Meloney.”
All of the workshops will be facilitated at the Nevis Craft House by art specialists, Marina Simmons and Marie Mason.
