CATEGORIES OF TRAINING
A total of 15 participants enrolled successfully for the 2018 Free Skill Acquisition (FSA) on Photography and Cinematography. Two professional and skilled facilitators were engaged to train and the lessons began with theory and graduated to practical sessions of all the major topics about handling a camera and the act of cinematography. As a proof of what participants had learnt by the end of the 2-weeks session, they practically took photographs training sessions and acted a short skit-piece on a trending developmental issue found among young people and how it can be abated. They were also able to edit the photographs taken with supervision and a lot of testimonials about the training and the desire to become financial independent with the skills abound from the participants.
A public school teacher and industrious female entrepreneur engaged our successful participants in liquid, detergent and soap making, alongside Izal and bleach laundry products. It was an eye opening session for the young people as they were equally taught the costing of the products and how they could easily become financially independent by engaging in this and at leisure. All of the products made are pictorially displayed below.
A professional Fine arts teacher from a recognized public secondary school within Ota town was engaged to facilitate the drawing and painting class of 15 successfully enrolled participants. Teaching in a serene and comfortable environment, he opened the creative and intellectual minds of the participants to the beauty around them, taking them the theory and art of Drawing and Painting. Canvas and Mural drawing and painting were taught and with close supervision, participants came up with two Canvas projects, a Mural painting of the Organizations’ Logo and a framed Art work, some of which can be seen below.
Our successful participants for the hair dressing session were engaged by a popular professional hair stylist with two support staff members from Ota town. With already acquired materials like Dummies, Attachment, weave and hairdressing materials, elated and vibrant participants were quick to grasp the art of making such hair-styles as the local didi and weaving (hair matting), hair fixing, plaiting, braids and twist. They also learnt the beautiful art of finishing the various hair types and styles as well as costing so they can gainfully engage in this skill. Very beautifully twisted braid and wig caps project are shown below for their hard work.
