GCS Summer Workshops And Activities
Gibraltar Cultural Services is offering several workshops and activities for young people to enjoy this summer.
A statement from GCS follows below:
The programme includes two art related workshops and a yoga session for kids at GEMA Gallery. Outdoor Storytelling sessions and a Summer Book Club at the John Mackintosh Hall Library are also part of the offering. The latter aims to encourage young readers to keep up their reading, explore new books and advance their reading skills over the summer months.
GEMA Gallery will be embracing the summer season with another specific curation, focusing on Gibraltar’s beaches and coastline. The last vault will see artworks from a variety of artists and styles showing off another collection of works which have not been seen together before; a subject matter that continues to capture the interest of artists.
The Mario Finlayson National Art Gallery will offer an updated discovery trail for young people with other interactive material available for our younger visitors. Newly acquired works by Mario Finlayson will also be on display.
A Street Art Mural walk is part of the programme too, encouraging participants to learn about Gibraltar’s murals and artists with interesting ideas and concepts shared. An ideal family outing, which has proved extremely popular with schools this past year.
