thenublack ♥s Art Rules Aruba

So thenublack featured Ayra Kip on Monday and she mentioned Art Rules Aruba, a program which herself and twin sister who are part of The Pancake Gallery Have put on. I’ve been following the progress of ARA, and it’s gone from strength to strength – getting a lot of support not only from Aruba but also gaining sponsorship from major companies such as Adidas, Ernst & Young, and Coca Cola!

With various disciplines, ARA has drafted in a great team of experts including London based Justin McKenzie and Jason ‘Motet’ Hicks of Uprock who’ll be involved in teaching successful applicants skills in Graphic Design and Djing. They’ve already selected the first 125 students….wish I was one of them, lol. I can’t wait to see the end result of the ARA program, I really love what the Pancake Gallery have done for their native country Aruba.

Thenublack salutes you!
