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.
This workshop is inspired by Hervé Tullet, a French artist whose creative workshops for children focus on fast and energetic activities to create fun and intuitive artworks. Sara reenacts an exciting dice game/exercise from Hervé’s beloved book Art Workshops for Children (2015) — part of the Jameel Library’s children collection. In the workshop, participants produce endearing monster characters, full of charm and humor as the game unfolds to reveal endless creative possibilities when artists shed their inhibitions.
Key workshop takeaways focus on looking at art but also on making and reflecting.
Sara Masinaei is a multidisciplinary artist. The development of Masinaei’s research and practice draw on underlying sociopolitical nuances of Middle East in its cultural evolution and the collective and idiosyncratic narratives of arts; attempting to question contexts and presuppositions of political narratives. She completed her BFA at American University of Dubai (2004) and received her MFA from Central St. Martins, University of the Arts London (2011).
