• Teen’s Tour and Workshop: Instrument Making

The Jameel Arts Centre holds together a series of tours and workshops for youth. 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 available.

This session is the first Jameel Arts Centre workshop to focus on music and is held by guitar-maker, Basil Azizoghly. Participants will create their own percussion instrument to play but also keep. The workshop features an introduction to understanding sound and music and making-skills focusing on up-cycling and creativity.

Key workshop takeaways focus on looking at art but also on making and reflecting.

Basil Azizoghly is a Luthier/stringed instrument- maker based out of Sharjah and Dubai. His raw materials include everyday household items and salvaged woods.
