The Holiday Art camp at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe is a fun and fantastic way to build up skills and knowledge on a five day Art Camp experience. The programmes for the Art Camp are age specific and build on knowledge and skill, extending the children's opportunity to discover new concepts. The Holiday Art Camp is designed to adopt a formal approach with regards to the instruction of students as it takes into account the needs of the student’s full-time commitments to mainstream academic pursuits in the School Curriculum whilst offering a practical bypass to help relieve the pressures of learning.
Each day of camp new topics are introduced as well as building on skills and techniques from the day before. Students are instructed and guided by practicing art instructors in the creation of expressionistic pictures in oil, acrylic or pencil crayon. They also learn about color mixing through tissue paper collages, paint and magic markers. The Camp serves to create a space in which young people can gain knowledge of visual arts, develop their visual creative abilities through fun experiences which makes their grasp of the discipline more memorable.
Registration fee for the Art Camp is $30 only and all materials are provided for the students with the kind support of La Rue. The registration fee is also inclusive of refreshments over the five day course and commemorative t-shirts are also be available for $5.
Participants receive prizes in their various age groups. The Holiday Art Camp takes place during the penultimate April, August School Holidays.
