AUCTIONS

Art Foundation Curacao organizes the Curaçao Cubes auction of the beautifully decorative wooden blocks to generate funds to give free  art  classes to kids in Curaçao.

THE TEAM

 is professional and tireless, very result oriented and creative, with the capacity to make big things happen for art in Curaçao. We are looking for less expensive ways to communicate this to the general public and our local (and international) partners/clients, so that more persons, especially the youth, can benefit from the organized art projects and activities.

CURACAO CUBES

Each kid from residential homes in Curacao will create their art by preparing and painting their own creations on small (97x97x44mm) block to exhibit and sell to the public. The proceeds of the sales will go to each home for the purpose of continuing art activities.

ART FOR THE SKY

 In connection with the 4th edition theme of Plein Air Cuacao:
Plein Aerial, over a hundred children formed our deer.

Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once we grow up.  

Pablo Picasso

kids workshop

The youth of Curaçao play an important part in our activities. Free art classes are given at schools and alternative homes ("internaten"). We give workshops for teens and free workshops for youngsters at JJIC (former GOG), which is the youth correctional institution. When beautiful art is being created, there is less room for thinking of mischief.

Scavenger hunt

Plein air paintings of scenes in  Punda are being used in this Scavenger hunt for kids. The kids will be divided in groups and work collaboratively to find the scenes that matches the

paintings.
