With the help of art, a person gets the opportunity to improve, develop, find balance and harmony. Since ancient times, art has been used as a mental therapy. Under its influence, a person’s character, feelings are formed, and even psychological problems are healed. Drawing, listening to music, reading, etc. give rise to a desire to create, give inspiration.
Participants can sign up for a week or the entire month. The price for each week is 550 AED.
The Cultural Foundation was created by Sheik Zayed in 1981. It was reopened in 2018 presenting contemporary culture and cultural exchange to the visitors.
