The African Centre has fine art in stock, made by many artists who have been discovered, promoted and developed through exhibitions & workshops.
The Velobala Art Programme has been running since 1996. Many of the new and exciting artists have come up through the Velobala classes which are held on a Saturday morning throughout the year.
The Velobala Art Group has had the great advantage of inspiring teachers through the years, Themba Shibase, Zama Dunywa, Kate Wells, Langa Magwa, Bronwen Findlay, Janet Purcell, Isaac Khanyile are some of them.
Velobala means “to be exposed to art” and the logo was designed in a competition to create a logo and identity for the art group. This was initiated by Kate Wells of the Design department of DUT.
