BNG Summer Camp
The students in the Bermuda National Gallery Art + Tech Summer Camp have just completed the first week of the 2020 programme. For the first time, the students have been given exclusive access to the BNG, which remains closed to the public during the week. This allows them to immerse themselves fully in the exhibitions which serve as a starting point for their projects.
The students have been exploring a wide range of art making processes under the direction of education officer Louisa Bermingham and 2020 Bermuda Biennial artist Niamah Frith, with assistance from Lara Hetzel, a recent graduate and artist who specialises in film and photography.
The engaging programme, aimed at students aged 11 to 14, focuses on a variety of art making skills – from traditional techniques such as drawing, sculpture, printmaking and textiles to digital technologies such as stop motion animation and digital drawing, often fusing the two together.
The programme is almost full but there are a few spaces left for August. Book now to avoid disappointment and take advantage of this unique opportunity.
The cost is $200 per week for BNG family members, $250 per week for non members. Bursaries are available, to enquire please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that due to the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, booking is limited to one week per student.
