    Teaching the next generation of artists to draw

    Day 35

    Learning to Draw

    The Nakivale library has been growing in popularity! People are now visiting looking for not only a reading experience but to learn how to do other skills such as drawing. Because books can transfer all kinds of knowledge, the teachers wanted to mix some drawing books into the library’s catalog.

    Jumping into action, our team tracked down the people who would have the knowledge of what the perfect books for learning to draw would be! Using the guidance of community artists, the library purchased 50 copies of drawing books covering topics from portraits to landscapes! Gabriel Dibwe from Nyandja Arts said that “these books will help Nyandja arts learners and library users on how to become professional artists as they will be their instructional materials.” These books will help usher in a new generation of Nakivale artists and we can’t wait to see what they draw!
