• Children’s Tour and Workshop led by Moylin Yuan

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 learning@artjameel.org. Limited spaces are available.

This workshop is inspired by artist Keita Miyazaki’s Barren Land part of the ‘Second Hand’ exhibition that brings together works from the Art Jameel Collection that explore materiality in contemporary art practice and currently on display at the Jameel Arts Centre until the 23rd of November.

Artist and illustrator, Moylin Yuan introduces participants to modular origami to create Toshie’s Jewel, a module used to build bigger structures – for instance, 3 modules to make a pyramid and 6 to make a cube! Participants make their own artwork and take away an instructional guide to experiment with to make their own building blocks at home.

Moylin Yuan is a designer who experiments with paper in all forms. Her research interests include human movement, astronomy, communication techniques, and how paper is a medium of expression within these topics.
