Part 1 of ART-TIVITY got off to a great start on Saturday! Suga Lifestyle (GW Art) in collaboration with the Rotaract Club of New Kingston is conducting an Art initiative with students from the Lister Mair/Gilby High School for the Deaf. They will be Painting, Tie-Dying, Jewellery making and learning customer service, marketing and entrepreneurship skills.

The children were quite excited and motivated, absorbing everything that was signed to them as they produced items from how they were guided. This project not only allows us to learn and communicate via sign language, but also aims to create awareness of the deaf community thereby reducing
stigmatization within the society at large. We want to create
new friendships through socialization and art and wish to inspire students to be more comfortable pursuing their dreams and goals without boundaries.
