Children’s art program at Nelson Mandela Museum, Qunu

November 18, 2010

SANTAM making Madiba’s wish a reality at Nelson Mandela Museum

The Nelson Mandela Museum in Qunu is turning to a magic place, with 20 learners between ages of 10 and 14 from five schools around Qunu.   These young learners will be participating on an art skills training from 20 November 2010 at 10h30am   for an art competition run by SANTAM countrywide.

This project is an educational platform aimed at inspiring and stimulating young minds through contemporary art. These learners will be trained in various art forms and further trained in concept development, image development to finished artwork.

In an effort to establish an active love of art and link the Ithemba Arts and Crafts Project, the museum saw an opportunity to reach out to young learners , a constituency closest to Madiba’s heart using contemporary art as a powerful tool for learning and discovery.  Khwezi Mpumlwana, CEO of Nelson Mandela Museum says “This is a clear demonstration of the museums commitment to use contemporary art as a way for children to explore and appreciate the world in new and different ways”

 Ithemba is an arts and crafts development wing of the museum which runs different arts programmes to benefit the local communities especially the youth, women and the disabled.

The children’s arts project will close off with an exhibition of the children’s artworks on 11 December 2010. The exhibition will be open for public viewing.

The Nelson Mandela Museum ackowledges SANTAM for the opportunity to develop the young minds at such an early time in their lives.
