Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al-Thani Museum (FBQ Museum) has announced that it will be organizing a busy program of activities and family events, characteristic of Eid al-Adha holidays.
The Museum is inviting families in Doha to celebrate the Eid holiday at the Museum with a special tour accompanied by experienced tour guides around the collections. This is in addition to a series of six artistic workshops and activities that are being organized for children.
Children can choose from “LEGO” & colors, Painting, Calligraphy, Clay Sculpture and Drawing workshops, all led by experts in the relevant fields. The “LEGO” program will motivate children to discover new ways of learning through a combination of educational tools.
The coloring workshop is specifically designed for children to draw and color artworks that inspire them the most from the collectibles displayed at Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Museum. Moreover, it will unleash their creativity and inspire them to create their own art pieces.
The sculpture workshop will offer training on how to use various modulation methods to make small scale models. This activity will promote complete artistic freedom so that they can come up with different forms and shapes to convey their creative vision.
The participants of the drawing workshop will have a chance to walk along the corridors of Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Museum and see the collectibles. They can then produce their own impressions of the pieces and artwork.
Through the use of magazines, newspapers and recycled paper, participants will learn to develop creative artwork through collage. In addition to the artistic side of this workshop, the activity will highlight the importance of recycling and how it helps preserve the environment.
The calligraphy workshop will allow participants to identify different types of Arabic calligraphy, and its uses in different art forms and objects. They will be able to distinguish the different styles of Arabic Calligraphy to produce artwork themselves.
