Currently running at the Durban Art Gallery until January 24 is Inkunz’emanxeba: The Legacy continues.. which might well serve as a living testament of history in the making during this generation.

This Exhibition Educational Program will offer a One Day Workshop on January 15 from 10h00 to 16h00. Aspiring artists will have the opportunity to spend the morning exploring artworks on show and acquiring information on featured artists. In the afternoon the participants will respond to the work using mixed media. They will learn basic drawing principles and painting techniques, they’ll also learn about composition, colour and personal expression whilst experimenting with various materials and techniques. This programme aims to produce tools to foster visual literacy and hopes to encourage artistic expression.

A number of Conversations are planned which will be of great benefit and interest to artists, students, gallerists, art historians, curators, museum directors, publishers, and collectors:
