The NAGB Mixed Media Art Summer Camp (MMASC), revamped in 2015, serves as an access point for all kids, aged 5 to 18, to Bahamian art and its history.
This year’s camp focused on national historical influences on Bahamian art, beginning with the Lucayans and ending with the tourism phenomenon. Campers were taught to identify visual storytelling techniques in artists’ work, understand the impact perception can have on accounts of historical events, and create individual and group work that communicated their perspective of Bahamian historic events.
Come see the fantastic work of these young artists! The MMASC Exhibition opens on Tuesday August 1st, and runs until August 28th.
