In August, Uganda Art Consortium held a three day art workshop at Kisa Primary School in Nansana, Uganda. Children from the school and the surrounding neighborhood had the opportunity to learn drawing, oil painting, beadwork jewelry and other art skills. Leaders of the workshop were UAC members James Nsamba and Farouk Mukwaya.


Several of the paintings by the children were displayed and sold at the recent UNAA convention at National Harbor, Maryland. Dominating the display was a huge (5 ft x 3 ft) oil painting on campus that was designed and created by children in the workshop. At least 25 children worked on the painting during the workshop, adding vision and ideas. The painting is called “Combined Ideas” reflecting the mixture of children who created the artwork. Several smaller canvases by individual child artists were also on display.
