Art Workshop in Panevezys

05 April 2019

In March 29-30, 2019 an international art workshop was organized in Panevezys Youth Centre in the frame of the project ““Social inclusion and youth empowerment in Panevezys and Kuldiga” (Youth empowerment), No. LLI-282. Fourty youngsters from Kuldiga and Panevezys came together to get to know each other’s culture better, to learn to work in a team as well as individually and to create.

The aim of the two-day workshop was to acquaint young people with the problem of identity and its importance. The essential task of adolescence as a developmental period is to define and strengthen one’s identity. This is especially important for young people aged 14-19. The greater the teenager’s perception of “Who am I?”, the stronger that person feels in the social environment; the greater is person’s self-esteem, the easier it is to set goals, make decisions, take responsibility, be motivated to learn, maintain quality relationships with others, benefit society. During the art workshop the youth had an opportunity to participate in different activities and classes such as painting classes, ceramic workshop, photography classes etc. At the end of the workshop an exhibition was open to present the creative works made by the participants.
