Summer art programmes for children are scheduled, free

Children and teens can participate in several drop-in art programmes hosted by the National Galley of the Cayman Islands during the summer months.

The summer programme includes a weekly “drop-in” art club, a Kids Cine Club and the Brac’s Art Day Camp.

There is no need to register in advance for most of these activities, making it a flexible arrangement for parents and caretakers.

The Kids Cine Club takes place every Tuesday afternoon at 2pm and all time favourite children’s films will be screened. On the calendar over the next few weeks are classics such as Annie (16 July), Oliver (23 July), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (30 July), The Incredibles (6 August), Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory (13 August) and Space Jam (20 August).

The weekly drop-in art club sessions run every Thursday from 2 to 4pm, with the first one having already taken place on 11 July. These classes inspire creativity, engagement and exploration of individual expression.

“We are able to offer these opportunities for free to children, thanks to kind sponsorship from Scotiabank,” says Ginny Copley, education manager at the National Gallery. “Parents should note that class size is limited, and the gallery operates a first come, first served system.”

Sessions are open to children ages 5 to 14. Children under 12 will need to be accompanied by an adult at Cineclub.
