The National Gallery of Jamaica will once again be hosting its educational workshop Writivity: How to Look at Artwork. The workshop will run from Monday August 14 to Wednesday August 16, 2023 at 9:30am -2:30pm.

The Writivity programme was developed to assist  CSEC Visual Arts students with the research and development of their reflective journals. The three-day workshop is open to students in grade 10 and 11 and provides them with a deeper understanding of how to view, analyse and apply research methodologies to art. During the workshop they will be given a combination of theory and practice, utilising the NGJ’s exhibition spaces and research materials.

Registration for Writivity is free of cost and refreshments will be provided for participants. All lessons and activities will be held on the NGJ premises, 12 Ocean Boulevard, Kingston Mall (Kingston).
