Fire Station has announced its Youth Summer Programme offering unique opportunities for young artists.

Creatives will have the chance to explore new mediums and work under the mentorship of four multidisciplinary artists: Hazim Al Hussain, Noof Al Theyab, Noora Al Saie and Paula Bouffard, who each will conduct their own personal workshops for the public.

The programme runs throughout August and events are scheduled five times a week with workshops comprising:

Hazim Al Hussain: Acrylic Painting Techniques
Date: July 31-August 4
In the first week of the programme, participants will investigate different painting methods and techniques using acrylic paint. They will be studying colour, perspective, harmony, and contrast to produce an integrated painting.

Noof Al Theyab: Resin Art
Date: August 7-11
Participants will learn how to use resin and experiment with different moulds and materials to create their own personal artwork.

Noora Al Saie: Hey, it is Moving!
Date: August 21-25 2022
In the third week of the programme, people will explore the different types of animations and will be guided on how to move random favourite daily objects and bring them to life.

Paula Bouffard: Fabric Patterning & Design
Date: August 28-September 1
During the final week of the programme, guests will learn how to print on fabric using different techniques and explore several surface design basics, carve printing blocks and experiment with simple shapes and colours.

Khalifa Al Obaidly said: “It’s not the first year that Fire Station has run a special programme to support young artists. We see this as an important mission of our institution that helps to support the young generations of creators. This year is no exception – during their master classes four artists will present their unique artistic approaches, show various techniques and help participants to unleash their creative potential.”

Registration for the programme will be available through the Fire Station calendar one week prior to the workshop. ✤
