Our credo is that art is an instrument that enables us to interact and communicate with our environment. The study of art, and artistic examination of everyday issues, permits a new perspective on our environments and everyday lives; it helps us to examine and define our own identities. With Art Education we can enrich our lives and broaden our horizons. At the Gallery we have several workshops for art education. We have art education programs for school groups and also for individuals, young and adult artists. The classes are split into four different age groups and are run concurrently with the school year. And at the end of each year we celebrate and show our work in an exhibition which is open to the public. A well trained team of Art teachers, social workers and artists welcomes you in the Gallery.
