Suga is not only an artist and owner of GW Art, but also a past Rotaractor and still supports the projects of various Rotaract Clubs. Suga Lifestyle and the Rotaract Club of New Kingston have teamed up to conduct an Arts and Entrepreneurship Workshop with young women from the Women’s Centre and Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA).
The Workshop was launched on Saturday, February 23, 2019. The venue and supplies needed for the Workshop have been funded by Suga Lifestyle and New Kingston Rotaract Club. The young ladies have been attending the workshop every Saturday since then under the guidance of Suga and Rotaractors.
The ladies are on course to use their learnt artistic, entrepreneurship and customer service skills to produce, showcase and sell their artwork at Craft Cart’s Pop Up Village on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at Campion College’s Auditorium. They will get to keep all of the proceeds.
Phenomenal Women United will have Paintings, Desktops/Tabletops and Wooden Signs. Here is a Preview!
Entry Cost is $200JMD with part proceeds to the Jamaica Autism Support Association (JASA).
There will be over 50 exhibitors, please come out, look out for us and support this initiative, JASA as well as other talented local artisans.
