Summer Arts Camp

2022 marks the return of the Art Jameel Summer Camp!

This action-packed, five-day, full-day programme is for just 12-15 participants, offering the opportunity for immersive hands-on learning and the development of new creative skills. The 2022 Summer Arts Camp is structured around maker-mornings and animation-afternoons. Participants will go home at the end of the week having experienced an array of new art-making techniques and with an animated film of their own on their phone or laptop.

The camp takes place at Jameel Arts Centre, Monday, July 4 to Friday, July 8, 9:00am – 3:30pm.

Designed by the Jameel’s specialist learning team, the week is structured to begin with either a morning tour of the galleries or a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum and collections storage, followed by stimulating activities to nurture creative learning through process-based and hands-on making. Morning workshops include painting, ceramics, experimental drawing, printmaking and performance activities inspired by featured artists’ techniques and processes.

Afternoons are dedicated to filmmaking, via a series of workshops designed by Youth Animation Platform; participants get to explore creative thinking, storytelling and self-expression. Campers produce their own animated films and experience claymation, pixelation and flipbook making activities.

Summer Arts Camp at the Jameel is for children aged 8-12. The Camp is led by Art Jameel’s early learning specialist Hadeel Al Heeti with Fadi Syriani, founder and mentor of Youth Animation Platform.

Limited spaces available (early booking recommended). The programme cost is Dhs1500 per child (inclusive of lunch at Teible, snacks and supply of all materials). Siblings receive a 10% discount.
