The National Gallery of Jamaica (NGJ) is pleased to announce the staging of the fourth edition of its educational workshop, WRITIVITY, which begins on Monday, August 13 and will continue until Friday, August 17, 2018. Inaugurated in 2015, the WRITIVITY workshop is designed for Grade 10 – 11 students, who are preparing to sit Visual Arts examinations for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC). The workshop is coordinated by NGJ’s Education Department and forms part of the gallery’s summer educational programming. The main goal of WRITIVITY is to assist students with the development of their visual arts reflective journal, which is a key component of CSEC’s School-Based Assessment (SBA) submission. By participating in this programme, students will be taught how to properly prepare entries for the journal, analyze art pieces and conduct art-related research, within sessions that utilize the NGJ’s art collection and document resources.
Registration for the WRITIVITY programme is free and there is also limited space for participants, as such interested persons should make contact with the National Gallery’s Education Department as soon as is possible via the following telephone numbers: 876 922 – 1561/3 (Lime landline), or 876 618 – 0654/ 5 (Digicel fixed line).
All activities for WRITIVITY will be held at the National Gallery of Jamaica from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
