Fresh from his adventures through Latin America, Gary Silipa is back to teach and inspire our youth through art in a workshop that explores culture and identity through patterns and colour in new ways.

Throughout the course, students will be working towards presenting their artworks in a public exhibition at the end through the support of the Creative Communities Scheme.
