The events are free and open to the public. The languages spoken are English and Arabic. All materials needed will be provided by Sharjah Art Foundation.

Practical Colour Theory workshop for children aged from 11 to 15 will take place at Gallery 4, Al Mureijah Art Spaces starting from 11:00 am and until 1:00 pm. The basics of colour theory will be explained to the participants of this workshop. Children will understand the ways to make secondary and complementary colours, and the reason why some colours stand out while others fade into the background.

Story of an Object workshop is designed for children aged from  6 to 10. The event will take place at Collections Building, Arts Square, and will last from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Participants will select an object of their choice, and then they will be encouraged to imagine this object out of its usual context. They will create a character for this object and imagine a story behind it. This workshop aims at developing imagination and skills required to create a story line.

Turn Your Memories into Comics Course with Wafaa Ibrahim is also intended for children aged from  6 to 10 years old. The event will take place at  The Flying Saucer and will last from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Here, participants will learn about comic books. They will be asked to remember something from their life, regardless of the emotion they felt at the time, and turn it into a drawing.
