July is here ! 
The 2018 "Growing Young SVG Artists "program is indeed happening! Preparations are in the final stages. The art supplies have already been shipped to St. Vincent in 2  barrels. The dates have been set. The Teachers Training Workshop takes place July 18th through July 20th.  
The instructors are exchanging info. about octopuses. The excitement is building!
The first sea creature sample has been made from paper mache. It is a seahorse called Nelson. 
 Flyers have been sent to parents inviting them to send their children to the program. 
Donors a huge thank you!
We are able to make these preparation, because of your genourous contributions.
 
The children's program starts Monday, July 23rd. 
In some locations children are already asking for registration forms. They are looking forward to the start of the program.  
The activities range from paper mache sea creatures, to book making and poetry writing. Activities require the children to use their imagination and have lots of discussions.
It will be interesting to see what the children produce! 
I will keep you posted in my next report. There will be much to see and report on the 2018 program - "From The Sea Part 2".
Your generous support has kept this program going all these many years. Please continue to support us.

 Donors help us forge ahead.
The long awaited spring is finally here and the school children in St. Vincent and the Grenadines are on their Easter break. During this break the Youlou Art Centre is offering an art program titled 10 Days of Art. 
This program focuses on creating art around the various local Easter traditions. Kite designs are being created, along with spectacular dinosaur eggs. The Easter regatta which takes place every year on the Grenadine island of Bequia is being reproduced, using drawings, and paints on paper. 
Plans are afoot for the children's annual art program set for July/August.
Last year it was titled "From The Sea" this year we will continue with the same theme, we will be adding part 2 with the emphasis on octopus.  
We are looking forward to seeing sculptures of extraordinary sea creatures from the deep, blue, sea and seeing many drawings of octopus doing wild and crazy things. 
Stay tuned, as the plans unfold we will keep you in the loop. Ah the excitment! 
Donors we are making a special appeal to you today. Your financial support is very much needed.
We do want to continue with the July/August program which is now 18 years years old.

The Impossible Made Possible

2017 closed on a high note at the Youlou Art Centre. It was a big year for us. 
 The impossible was made possible with the launch on March 4th, 2017 of the Youlou Art Centre. 
Like all new start ups. The centre is going through a few teething problems. Some of these problems are solved creatively and so we are forging ahead. Our biggest challenge has been getting the word out to the public about the workshops and events held at the centre. We have not been successful in our advertising efforts.  
I have to admit, we lack the necessary funds to advertise and do a better job. 
I am appealing to you donors to consider giving a donation towards helping us in this area.
I am happy to report there is progress in the sale of paintings at the centre. We have had 5 shows and sold a total of 23 paintings. 
But we lack sufficient participants for the art workshops we offer to children and adults.   
Donors you can help us improve our advertising efforts by giving us a donation! 
A big thank you to all your kind donations you have given us in the past and hope you will continue to support us.
Here's wishing you all the very best for 2018.
