Students across Kenya are currently on a long break from school until the end of April and this can be a risky time for children in Kibera if they are not engaged in productive activities. So for the next several weeks, we will be holding our art classes six days a week, Monday to Saturday, from 2 pm to 4 pm.
The sessions will allow children to draw, paint, and learn about different artistic styles and techniques. Classes are led by one of Uweza’s older artists, Wesley, who painted for the first time at Uweza’s art classes more than ten years ago and is now one of the gallery’s best-selling artists. It is exciting to see our work and impact coming full circle and to see the next generation of upcoming artists blossoming!
