International Bank of Qatar (ibq) partnered with Qatar Museums (QM) Family and Schools Programmes to host a children’s drawing workshop at the Qatar Museums Fire Station on Saturday, 23 May 2015.
The event targeted 7-11 year old children of ibq customers to be creative and try their hand at painting and drawing in the Workshop.
QM Family & Schools Programmes developed and implemented the one-day art programme for ibq’s ‘Young Saver Account’ customers and other ibq customers’ children.
The idea behind the workshop was for the attending young artists to create ibq Eid Greeting Card, with each child contributing their artwork, so that the Eid card would combine all artworks in one card, printed by the Bank. The children’s works will also be featured in the 2016 ibq desk Calendar.
Jabra Ghandour, Managing Director at ibq said: “As part of ibq’s CSR agenda supporting youth education and art in particular, ibq Artist Series encourages our customers’ children to use their imagination and create ibq Eid Greeting Card. Partnering with QM Family and Schools Programmes resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable day and valuable workshop for the children. It is a perfect example of how we at the Bank reach out to the community through our customers to provide families with special educational experiences for their children to treasure.”
Jessica Ludwig, Head of Families at QM Family & Schools Programmes said: “We are excited to partner with ibq on this event, offering creative art activities for children and their families. The activities will encourage children to explore their favourite traditions of Eid Al Fitr with their families, and a selection of their final artworks will be showcased in an ibq Eid Greeting Card. This is a great community partnership with the International Bank of Qatar, where children’s ideas are celebrated and their creativity shared with others.’
