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 led by the artist Zahra Jewanjee will focus on the development of imagined landscapes using Jaddaf Waterfront Sculpture Park as a point of reference to explore migratory birds passing through the UAE each year. Participants will envision a creative composition that focuses on nature and respond with a creative painting as their final outcome. They will learn to constructively analyze their own work centered around composition, color, value, application, movement space and tone.
Key workshop takeaways focus on looking at art but also on making and reflecting.
Zahra Jewanjee is an artist and educator living and working in the UAE. She received her BFA from the National College of Arts and MFA at the Rhode Island School of Design.
