The Division of Virgin Islands Cultural Education (DVICE) has announced the debut of its Virgin Islands Cultural Program of the Arts, a visual arts program for junior high and high school students.
“The art program will consist of visual arts, to include drawing, painting and some other art forms such as tie-dying, for example,” said DVICE Director Valrica Bryson. “This program is specifically geared towards those students who may love to draw but have not had an opportunity to take an art course in school.”
The program will be held from 4:30-6 p.m., from Feb. 14 through May 9, Thursdays and Fridays, at the St. Croix Cultural Arts Center located in Christiansted, which is adjacent to the Department of Education’s school lunch warehouse.
Fifteen students will be chosen for the program. Interested students must not currently be enrolled in an art course.
The program will be facilitated by local artists John Jones and Waldemar Brodhurst, and it will culminate with an art show in May.
A meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 8, in the St. Croix Educational Complex High School’s band room for parents of interested students.
