Top Liberian Artist Wants Arts, Culture Taught In Schools
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, December 20  (LINA) - The Executive Director of “Child Art Liberia” in Monrovia,. Fato Whremongar, has recommended the teaching of arts and culture in schools to expose Liberian students to the industry.

He also called for government’s support to Liberians who are in the art business to prevent foreigners taking over the art market.

Whremongar made the call Monday in the Paynesville Joe Bar Community when he presented artistic works on behalf of the Liberian children to the Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt through its Deputy Head of Mission, Wael Massallam ,  for submission to the Egyptian National Center for Children Culture.

The Egyptian National Center for Children Culture is organizing three competitions in a bid to enhance the existing bond among children of the world and to develop their skills.

Children of the world will be competing in Photography under the theme ‘Egypt in the Eyes of Children of the World’ and handmade toys.

Whremongar observed that many Liberian children have inborn talents in arts and culture  as well as other artistic works, but are not being given the necessary  support  or education to make their dreams come true.

In remarks, Massallam lauded Whremongar and government for the effort in taking part in the competition which, according to him, will develop the skills of Liberian children.

The Egyptian diplomat indicated that the organizers look forward to the participation of the Liberian children in the competition.

Earlier, the Assistant Minister of Culture at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), Madam Louise W. McMillan, expressed delight  about the competitions, saying that they will make Liberians develop interest in arts and culture.
