Adenrele Sonariwo, one of the lead team members, said that the school’s programme is billed to take off on January 7, at the Whitespace, Ikoyi, Lagos, with weekly practical classes in six core areas of Creative Writing; Fashion and Designs; Photography; Web Design and development; Visual Arts, and Multi-platform Communication.
Sonariwo described this new infusion to art development in Nigeria as foundation that would bring about the much desired fresh angle in the total outlook of arts. “This programme will open new opportunities for an unrivalled growth in art profession in Nigeria, because networking will be at the heart of everything here. As practical trainings take place, the system will at the same time be galvanizing the entrepreneurial opportunities available in all sectors of the economy.”
Building its strategy with resources from within the sector, renowned artists like Don Berber, Ituen Bassey, Tolu Ogunlesi, Victor Ehikhamenor, Omoyemi Akerele, and Mudi Yahaya would among many others, be taking the students in the diverse areas of the arts.
