Opportunity through Education

Art at Kiwimbi

The Art Program at Kiwimbi is flourishing, providing new opportunities and uncovering otherwise hidden talents. From drawing and painting to weaving to pottery and beyond, both young and old have an opportunity to learn new or hone existing skills. 

There are several reasons why art is an important component of our educational efforts. A rt can serve as a tool for kids in school who may benefit from a creative approach to learning. For some of our students it can become a career.  See, for instance, our art teacher Hosea with a deaf protege.
Without Kiwimbi, she would not have the same opportunity to expand her expressive skills :


Or art can serve as a visual connection with the culture and the past, both for young ones and for visitors:

The art program is just one component of Kiwimbi's broad approach to education which recognizes that not all students thrive with traditional approaches.
