Recognizing the importance of art education in developing critical thinking skills, confidence and teamwork, Bermuda National Gallery with the generous support of Centennial Bermuda Foundation are offering needs based scholarships for the Art+Tech Summer Camp programme.
This year, the Art+Tech programme, which has been running since 2009, is open to 15 students per week. They will be based between the gallery and the BNG Education Satellite Space in the nearby Washington Mall, generously supported by Washington Properties. Each student will be assigned an iPad and Apple Pencil to work with.
To ensure that as many students as possible have access to the course, registration is limited to one week per student. They can choose from a variety of modules:
Animation: Students will learn the principles of animation and apply those to making short 2D animations.
Digital Painting: Students will learn colour theory and perspective as well as digital painting techniques.
Photo Editing : Using photography and photo editing techniques, this week will introduce students to digital collage and photobashing.
A selection of artworks produced in the 2021 Art+Tech summer camp programme can be viewed here.
Scholarships, which cover up to 85% of the cost of camp, are needs-based and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. The cost of camp is $250 for BNG Family Members (or higher), and $325 for non-members. An annual Family Membership is included for non-members.
Membership includes unlimited free gallery access for up to 4 family members (2 adults and 2 children), invitations to exhibition previews and exclusive events plus priority access to all BNG education programmes.
