The National Gallery of Jamaica has resumed its innovative child art programme, Saturday Art Time. Active since September 2009, the programme consists of several gallery based art workshops for children age 8 to 15. Participants are taught drawing, painting, assemblage and collage. The workshops also provide an opportunity to learn more about Jamaican culture and history through the Gallery’s permanent collection exhibition.
Aspiring photographer Yone Gordon placed first in photography in the Jamaica Information Service 2019 Heritage Competition. He had placed second and third in previous years.
