Recap of our Virtual Arts & Heritage Summer Camp: 

Every child looks forward to a summer holiday filled with camps and adventure. But everything was different this year. COVID-19 meant that most children in rural Jamaica had a difficult school term and very little to look forward to.

That's why the Wattle & Red Earth Collective hosted a fun, interactive, online 2-week Virtual Arts & Heritage Camp children ages 6-11.  Arts and Heritage instruction is part of a well-rounded education. WARE integrates Foundational STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts/architecture and mathematics) principles to connect subjects which are often perceived as separate. The program’s activities increased collaboration among children, teachers, parents and community artisans in fun & interactive ways. 
 
Primary school teachers were supported to skilfully incorporate folk and traditional arts and heritage to enhance overall curriculum  delivery.
