An arts education programme is reaching out to the public for support so it can offer its resources to more students.

The Kaleidoscope Arts Foundation, which is celebrating its 18th anniversary this year, has announced that it hoped to celebrate by bolstering its bursary programme.

A Kaleidoscope spokeswoman said: “From its board members down to the staff, Kaleidoscope firmly believes that financial barriers shouldn't prevent anyone from accessing these fantastic programmes.

“Having already raised $27,500 this year, the charity is hopeful to gather another $49,500 to support the community.

“With your help, these additional funds would welcome 120 students spots to summer camps and classes, who wouldn't be able to join otherwise.”

The spokeswoman said the organisation’s main focus was on empowering people from toddlers to adults through a variety of art and garden programmes.

A parent of a child involved in the 2024 bursary programme said: “The skills and experiences my daughter is gaining here are priceless for her personal and academic development.

“We're excited to see her creativity flourish and look forward to her future achievements in the arts, all thanks to Kaleidoscope.”

Kaleidoscope will be hosting camps for four weeks in July and two weeks in August.

However, the organisation also offers a variety of year-round classes and public school enrichment programmes.

The spokeswoman added: “If you know a young, aspiring artist or gardener who could benefit from a scholarship, don't hesitate to recommend them.

“Kaleidoscope’s bursary students are ages 4 to 18 and can be recommended by a teacher, social worker, community partner or a caregiver.

“If you know a student who is interested please reach out to info@kaf.bm to share your interest and learn about our opportunities.”
