Workshops for Children and Families from Sharjah Art Foundation

Sharjah Art Foundation is organising two ​​workshops for children and families. The events will take place on Saturday the 28th of May, 2022. They will start at 10:00 am and last until 12:00 pm.  The workshops are free of charge and open to the public. The languages spoken are English and Arabic. All materials needed will be provided by Sharjah Art Foundation.

One of the workshops for children and families is called Black and White Photography. Recommended age range is from  11 to 15 years old. The workshop will be held at Al Hamriyah Studios.

In this workshop, participants will have a tour of the exhibition, Gerald Annan-Forson: Revolution and Image-making in Postcolonial Ghana (1979–1985). This exhibition is now held at Al Hamriyah Studios until the 7th of July, 2022. The photographs of Ghanaian photographer Gerald Annan-Forson will serve as an inspiration for the participants. The participants will learn about basic photography skills, different ways they apply to black and white photography and will learn how to create a great monochrome image.

The other workshop for children and families is called Ink Drawings. Recommended age range is from  6 to 10 years old. The workshop will be held at Collections Building, Arts Square.

The artworks of an important Arab modernist, Lebanese artist Aref El Rayess (1928 – 2005), are presented in the artist’s first major institutional exhibition at Sharjah Art Foundation. A wide range of painting, drawing, sculpture and collage are presented at the exhibition. Inspired by Aref El Rayess’ use of black ink in his art, participants of the workshop will depict vignettes of Sharjah after looking through photographs and objects from Sharjah. Participants will also sketch using a pencil and then ink their drawings using pens, applying various hatching and stippling techniques. 

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