Colourful still life will take place on the 7th of July. Participants will go on an excursion to Al Noor Island to see the butterflies house, surrounding trees and the architecture of the place.

Movement sketch will be held on the 3d of July. While sketching, participants will be moving, walking and running. This interesting approach to sketching will result in unexpected, funny artworks.

Charcoal studio will take place on the 5th of July. Basics of charcoal drawing will be explained. Participants will learn about charcoal as a medium for drawing, about balance and composition. At the end of the workshop, they will pick an object as their subject to create a still life charcoal drawing.

Pen and ink techniques will be explained on the 7th of July.  A technique called ‘no-brush painting’ will be used. Participants will express themselves with acrylic paint and a canvas while using daily objects as their drawing tool instead of a brush.

Sharjah Art Foundation aims at making it possible for anyone with special needs to attend these events. Please, contact the Sharjah Art Foundation in advance to arrange any support needed during this session.
