Young people aged 10-15 can now apply to participate in a series of Saturday workshops at Darat al Funun examining its current exhibition LINE. We will critically explore the artists’ stories, practices, and their use of ‘line’ in both 2D form such as painting, drawing, and printmaking as well as in 3D forms, such as sculpture, installation, video and performance.
The workshops form part of the “Nahnou Together” community educational program, which aims to raise art awareness and to enable participants to discover and develop their skills, by learning about methods of artistic expression and techniques used in contemporary art practices.
The “Nahnou Together” program was launched by the British Council in 2006 in Jordan, Syria, and the United Kingdom, in collaboration with Tate in London. The program brings together specialists, artists, curators, and trainers with young people through both face to face and internet exchanges and dialogue.
