Welcome to Art Rules

The #1 Educational Arts Program in the Dutch- Caribbean

Presented by the Art Rules Group

A division of The Pancake Gallery Foundation, Art Rules brings an international team of professionals from around the world to the islands, to teach (in collaboration with local professionals) and share their professional perspectives, expertise and skills through an intensive workshop program.

The Project

Our workshops are taught through various methods, including intensive training, research development, assignments, talkbacks, lectures, screenings, performances and presentations. In closing of the program, Art Rules students get to present what they have learned and produced during the program in a multimedia theatrical showcase with presentations and exhibitions. Although these presentation are well-produced, our focus is primarily on the process and development that takes place during the program. 

Art Rules is developed for young teens that are just coming into that phase of their lives in which they deal with identity and transition into becoming young adults. We therefore prioritize offering our students/teens a safe place for them to explore their interests and curiosities.

The program is therefore also aimed at the 13-23 year olds and no prior experience in the Arts is required. No matter who you are or where you are from, if you are motivated to tap into your personal talent, skills or if you simply want to find a place where you can express or discover your artistic side; our message to you is, “Art Rules is for everybody”!
