As this challenging year comes to an end, the hope is you will continue to visit and support the Youlou Art Centre in 2022.
The Youlou Art Centre is the result of many years of effort and fund-raising by the members of Youlou Arts Foundation, a non profit arts organisation.
The Youlou Art Centre was launched in 2017. It is an educational institution and community gathering space, geared to serve you art all year round.
As a result of COVID-19, art institutions worldwide have been hit hard by the virus; yet the Youlou Art Centre persists.
The organization is focused more than ever in continuing to fulfil its mission, that of providing art education to children and adults and to give local artists the opportunity to exhibit their work.
Our plans for 2022 are as follows:
Starting Saturday January 8, 2022, the Saturday morning art classes for children between the ages 5 to 12 will resume. These classes are held from 10:00 a.m to 12 noon.
Other plans being made are a printing making class for teenagers,the start date for this workshop is being finalised.
There are plans to have a jewellery making class which is in the planning stages. When all the details have been nailed down the public will be informed about the start dates.
The Centre will be offering several “Sip and Paint” events throughout the year. No dates have been set as yet!
In March, the month known as women’s history month, big plans are afoot to celebrate the women of SVG. There will be an all women’s art show at the Youlou Art Centre. This show titled “Women Take The Floor” has been in the planning stages since early 2021. If you are a woman artist who is just learning about this show and would like to participate, don’t hesitate to call the Youlou Art Centre.
During this month, there will be several special events celebrating women. As the plans unfold you will be informed.
