Gibraltar Cultural Services is offering a number of workshops and activities for young people to enjoy this summer. The programme includes two art related workshops at GEMA Gallery with short gallery tours included, and a Summer Reading Challenge at The John Mackintosh Hall Library. This aims to encourage young readers to keep up their reading, explore new texts and advance their reading skills over the summer months.

This workshop will offer a series of games in which children can collaborate in creating art through enjoyable activities. The workshop is suited to children aged 6-11. Suitable and comfortable clothing should be worn.
Monday 19th July, 11am – Ermelinda Duarte ‘Recycling and Art’
The artist will be running a creative workshop using unwanted plastics and non-recyclable materials into art, based on her recent installation at GEMA, titled ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – Mandala’. Participants are encouraged to bring clean, empty crisp packets and bottle tops. The workshop is suitable for children aged 10- 14.
