National Gallery summer art camp finishes

| 07/07/2013

(CNS) Local youngsters enjoyed a fun and creative week at the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. The gallery’s week long summer arts camp has included group art activities, painting, ceramics and the opportunity to make a 3d sculpture by recycling unwanted objects. The children got to work with a number of local artists and develop a wide range of skills over the week. On the final day of camp the children put on an exhibition of their work and invited guests to come and view their artistic creations.

Ginny Copley, Education Manager, explained that “The camp was free to children because of kind sponsorship by Scotiabank. Their sponsorship also helps us to provide drop in art sessions and screen movies for kids during the summer vacation.”

Simone Hull, Marketing Manager for Scotiabank and Trust Cayman said “Scotiabank is pleased to partner with the Gallery to host this exciting camp for 8-13 years old. We think this age is ideal to expose the students to unique ways of expressing themselves through art and to build their understanding of how art contributes and integrates into society. We are proud of the work that the National Gallery did this week with the students, some of whom have shown tremendous potential and trust that this will inspire them to continue to explore avenues to showcase their skills”
