School of Art and Design was founded in 2005 by Signa Greaves-Francis who after returning from studying and working in the USA, recognized the need for training in art and design in Saint Lucia to students wishing to pursue a career in those areas.
The school however didn’t open to the public until 2011 after all the research and logistics were put in place to operate an institution of that nature. In the Summer of 2011, fifty students with ages ranging from six to sixteen became the first group of students to participate in the school’s first Annual Summer Art Program.
School of Art and Design operated out of the Carilec Building in Sans Souci, Castries for it’s first five years offering various courses and programs to potential creatives. The school also instituted its first outdoor public event in 2013; the Annual “Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival” held every Easter Monday at the Bay Walk Shopping Mall Sidewalk area.
