Jameel Arts Centre holds together a series of tours and workshops for teens. 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 photographer John Marsland will give participants an introduction to creative and striking portrait making. With a few props, a light and with a camera in hand participants we will create some fun and expressive portraits, using household items and a single light to create striking shadows.
Note that all participants are requested to bring a smartphone or camera they wish to work with.
Key workshop takeaways focus on looking at art but also on making and reflecting.
