Youlou Arts Foundation to host annual Summer Programme

Youlou Arts Foundation is staging its 2024 Annual Visual Arts Programme -”Growing Young SVG Artists”.

The Foundation said in a release that with the long July/August school holidays fast approaching, it is important for children to have activities which are fun, engaging, and that keep them occupied, curious and entertained. The Youlou Arts Foundation said it has crafted its annual programme with all this in mind, and has consistently created fun, and educational art activities with the theme “Growing Young SVG Artists”. The programme has been offered to children of SVG for almost 25 years, the Foundation said, and for the past several months the organization has been busy getting ready for the 2024 edition.

This year’s programme focuses on climate change and is the third consecutive year that the focus has been on this issue.

“ Children need to know the cause of the climate crisis and how it affects us,” the Foundation said. The aim is to help children develop a sense of responsibility and passion for the world around them and be prepared to face the challenges which will affect them for the rest of their lives, it also said.

The two main activities for this year are creating a mural in the Uptown Market building in Kingstown, and planting mini forests in three locations where the programme is held. They will be planted in the Tourama Government School yard, Georgetown Government School, and in Spring Village on land privately owned.

The children’s art programme will be held from Monday, July 22 through Wednesday, August 7, 2024, from 9:00 a.m to noon for children aged 5-12 year.

This year the plan is to offer the programme in Kingstown; at the Youlou Art Centre, Indian Bay; in Tourama; Georgetown; Buccament Bay; and Spring Village.
