Artistic school offers a huge range of courses
Los Realejos has opened its Artistic School courses with 520 students enrolled
The municipality has already consolidated an offer of up to 19 training disciplines for users of all ages.
Councillor for culture, Isabel Socorro said the training project started around two decades ago with about seven or eight modalities but now offers 20 choices.
“This demonstrate the growing interest of residents for training in artistic disciplines but also the fact that these schools have become a true training centre of reference for the entire region because students come from other locations, “ said the Mayor of Los Realejos, Manuel Domínguez.
The central event of each course is a street art show of the works developed during those previous months by all schools, consolidating under the name of Ártate.
Isabel Socorro said that although the course has started in various disciplines, the registration deadlines in different modalities are still open. Precise information is offered at the Casa de las Artes, located at the confluence of calle San Agustín with calle Lanzarote.
The programming of each course is coordinated by the Association for the Promotion of Visual and Performing Arts of Los Realejos (AFAVER), who receives logistical and economic collaboration from the City Council of Los Realejos, also offering a series of specific bonuses in the quotas for students of large families or those in which two or more members are enrolled in this training offer.
Based on the experience of the enrollment rate of the last courses, these numbers may be increased in the coming weeks.
Courses include plastic arts, dance, photography, musical instruments, video games, traditional em-broidery and gastronomic creations in confectionery and cocktails.
There is also ballroom dancing, graphic design, cermaics, cinea and TV, fashion design, photography, creative jewellery, patchwork, theatre and circus skills.
