Let’s Create Art influenced by Ancient Mesopotamia!

For Art-Loving Parents and Aspiring Young Artists, Ages 8 – 12!

Join Dara Global Arts Gallery for our art workshops for children each Sunday from 2 – 4 pm, February 4 – February 18, 2018. Children will learn about artwork based in ancient civilizations in the Fertile Crescent and Mesopotamia, from Ancient Sumer through the rise of the Persian Empire, and will make their own artistic creations using mixed media and acrylic paint.

Art workshops will be led by established artist, Maysoon Al-Gburi, who will teach children how to use materials such as paper and plastic cut-outs, and methods to paint over these objects to create unique pieces of art. 

Today, we think of these methods as decoupage, but the concept exists in ancient artwork thousands of years ago!

We invite parents and children to join us for this fun, artistic and cultural event. Register for one or all three workshops where Maysoon will present a different art piece for inspiration.

Then, join us on Sunday, February 25, 2018 for the children’s gallery opening where we’ll celebrate their artwork!
