Children’s Summer Camp at Jameel Arts Centre: Session 1

Jameel Arts Centre hosts its first Summer Arts Camp for children ages 8-13 led by UAE artists and creatives.

The five-day-programme led by different artists everyday takes place Sunday July 7, 2019 to Thursday July 11, 2019 (9:00am – 4:00pm) and focusses on immersive hands-on learning workshops inspired by the Jameel Arts Centre’s exhibitions.

The daily sessions and exciting activities nurture creative learning through art thinking and making. Featuring regional art history, the workshops include exercises in mindfulness, drawing, collage, pattern-making, story-telling, zine-making and short-films, reading sessions on arts and creativity and an arts-specific treasure hunt in the Centre.

The fun-packed week includes a group collaboration where children spend time building together a large-scale cityscape installation made of upcycled material.

The programme will also include a carefully selected 50 minute screening of short films from the Looking Glass Film Club, a homegrown socially responsible film platform that screens cinematically-influential films for the youth through strategic partnership with international children’s film festivals and independent studios.
