Youth Art Month is designed to celebrate and promote Visual Arts and Visual Arts Education for all children and aspiring artists and designers.
This year the school was invited to participate in the Inspire/Aspire Project from Scotland.
‘Inspire/Aspire: Global Citizens in the Making’ is to encourage young people ages 8 to 18 to think constructively about the future and their role in bringing it about within the context of the Commonwealth and its values. It is an independent education programme inspired by the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The aim is character development in young people. It is designed to help them explore their character, ideals and values through a unique poster template using supporting Internet resources.
Through the activities students reflect qualities and values using writing, illustrating and stories to express their thoughts. The culmination of the exercise is their response to questions about the kind of person they want to be and the goals they want to achieve.
The school will also be offering a free painting and photography workshop to the public and has partnered with Alliance Francaise in hosting the photography workshop by a French Photographer.
All activities begin in March and culminate with the School’s Annual Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival, which will be held on Easter Monday.
Registrations for these workshops can be done at the school’s location in the CARILEC building in Sans Souci. Interested persons can also call the school at 451-4278 or 285-651 from 8:30am to 5:30pm, Monday through Thursday and 8:30am to 3:00pm on Friday for dates.
