A unique piece of Rwandan artwork is a beautiful way to dress up your little one's nursery or the family living room. From paintings to sculptures, many Rwandan artists today are self-taught and provide custom art services.
This offers families the opportunity not only to customize artwork for their home or to give as a gift, but also let's you get to know the artist and perhaps even visit their studio! This personal touch makes your artwork even more special.

Inema’s Arts Center flagship programs, including Nziza Artworks, Art with a Mission, and Inema Dance, each cultivate young Rwandan creatives to develop livelihoods in the creative arts.
Through workshops, trainings, and hands on classes, the Inema Arts Center expands creativity throughout Rwanda and the African continent.
Since it's inception in 2007, Ivuka has been honing skills of young Rwandan artists through self-sustained programs that would boost their self-esteem, harness their artistic development and create local and international exposure for their creations.
Today Ivuka boasts to have produced Rwanda’s current top artists most whom have grown and moved out of the center to establish their own studio spaces.
Ivuka is an open studio space where local artists convene everyday of the week to work
together under one roof. The center is also comprised of a gallery space where finished
artworks especially paintings are hang on display for visitors to view.
