Registration begins for 'Walkers Art Club'

Registration begins today for the National Gallery’s “Walkers Art Club,” an initiative sponsored by Walkers Global. 

Now in its eleventh year, space will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

The program offers six free weekly art classes to children living in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. 

It follows a year-long curriculum designed to supplement learning arts in school and to introduce students to local and international art, the gallery said in a statement. 

There are 20 spaces available for each of the four “Walkers Art Club” programs, and students will need to commit to the full year to be accepted. 

Prospective students will be placed on a waiting list after spaces fill up, organizers said. 

The four programs are “Walkers Art Club Primary Grand Cayman” for ages 7-9; “Walkers Art Club Primary Cayman Brac” for ages 7-12; “Walkers Art Club Secondary” for ages 10-12; and “Walkers Art Club Teens” for GCSE and CXC examination support. 

Classes are scheduled to resume the week of Sept. 14. 

“Walkers Art Club Preschoolers and Parents,” run as a weekly drop-in session on Fridays at 10:30 a.m., and “Walkers Art Club Lighthouse,” run on Tuesdays, will also resume that week. 

Forms can be picked up from the National Gallery or downloaded from its website. For more details, email [email protected] or call Kerwin Ebanks at 945-8111.
