Children’s workshop: Art Talks with Educator EY Lucy Jung

Join this engaging and informative Art Talks workshop designed by educator EY Lucy Jung. Art Talks is a child-led series that takes place across exhibitions and encourages observation, discussion, collaboration and hands-on making to foster creative learning. 

In this edition, children are invited to select artworks from the current exhibition Vikram Divecha: Short Circuits and with a series of helpful prompts, discuss the meaning behind the artworks. 

Children gain a deep dive into Vikram’s process, learning how the artist collaborates and works with various professionals from the community. Children explore how the works in the exhibition reveals hidden aspects of planning, building, demolition, and maintaining structures that influence the shape of cities in United Arab Emirates and beyond. Participants also learn about the unconventional materials used in Vikram’s works and discover new ways of interacting with the every day spaces we encounter. In response to the Art Talks, children translate their thoughts into artistic creations.

Art Talks actively engages children in critical thinking and enhances their communication skills. Through shared learning experiences, children build connections within their community by collaborating to uncover unique perspectives. 

This workshop is free to attend and is suitable for ages 6-12. No prior art experience is required. All materials and equipment are provided.
