The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) is wrapping up the last week of Session One of the Mixed Media Art Summer Camp and getting ready for Session Two. Kids ages 5 to 17 are welcomed to the NAGB, where they’ll spend their time learning visual art techniques, exploring different avenues of creativity and developing their knowledge of art.
This year we are going “Back to da Island” as we explore indigenous Bahamian crafts like straw work, basket weaving, shellcraft, wood carving and much more, in traditional and not so traditional ways. Under the guidance of professional artists and educators, their exploration of materials and techniques will pay homage to Bahamian crafts in their original form while pushing it into the realm of fine art, building a bridge between two equally important forms of creative expression.
The camp is held 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday on the grounds of the NAGB. At the MMASC, we value your child and work to provide a fun and safe environment for them to explore in. All the materials, equipment, instructors, lunch and snack are included in the fee. Campers are only asked to bring a great attitude and lots of creativity.
