The Corozal House of Culture has embarked on its 6 weeks Summer Art Wave Program. Today we visited the house of culture and caught up with participants as they finished off their daily charcoal drawings. And since they were shy to go on camera, coordinator at the Corozal House of Culture, Deborah Wilks spoke to us about the work they were carrying out.

“This week we are actually midway through our summer art way program with the charcoal drawing and so what is happening this week is charcoal drawing and we have participants, mostly youths taking this program Monday through Friday this week and it is a basically we have an instructor, Mr. Benjamin Cal who is very well verse in charcoal and he is instilling his knowledge on to the students guiding them through these techniques using charcoal and charcoal to me is a very powerful medium, you don’t get lost in colors , is very much in your face and the students are excelling and turning beautiful pieces of art.”

Next on the agenda of activities for the house of culture is the string instrument lesson program.
