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.
Six students from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts designed a mural to mark the starting line of the Sagicor Sigma Run in February.
