Jameel Arts Centre holds together a series of tours and workshops for children. The workshops feature a guided tour of the galleries and a discovery journey of artworks followed by creative hands-on activities, unique to each visit and led by artists and educators.
Sessions are free-to-attend with advance registration required. Register by emailing [email protected]. Limited spaces are available.
Inspired by the importance of storytelling in comics and cartooning, this workshop led by Mohammad Alshaibani teaches participants the basics behind developing a one-page comic spread. The session delves into the art of storytelling, drawing thumbnails for design, penciling the comic book page, and finally inking it to produce a clean and finished product that participants can take home.
Key workshop takeaways focus on looking at art but also on making and reflecting.
