As another community building/creative collaboration, Creative Nassau was honoured to have been asked to partner with the IDB for their Student Art Summer Camp under the theme "ENERGY" that is being held during the month of July at two locations: Bethel Baptist Church on Meeting Street, headed by art teacher, Yutavia George and at Gladtidings Church on Kemp Road headed by architectural student, Kirk Deal.
Patricia Glinton-Meicholas addressed the students about Creative Nassau and the importance of creativity and The Orange Economy to the country's progress, and coloured pencil artist, K. Smith demonstrated some of his amazing artistic techniques.
During the camp, the students are being exposed to art history as well as several art techniques in addition to having discussions about energy conservation and recycling along with examining the importance of the Bahamian clapboard house - a unique creative response developed by our Bahamian ancestors in response to shelter suitable for this environment.
They will also be working on two exciting and transformative murals in their neighbourhoods as of next week. In addition, the artwork resulting from this Camp will be displayed in an Exhibition which will open at Doongalik Studios NEXT FRIDAY, JULY 31 from 7-9pm and the public is invited to attend......the Exhibition will be on display until Wednesday August 12! Gallery hours are Monday-Wednesday from 10am - 4pm.
