Overview

The Children’s Education Programme at Sharjah Art Foundation offers workshops, courses and excursions conducted by professional specialist artists working in a broad range of visual and performing arts. Designed for participants aged 6 to 15, the programme aims to teach children technical art skills and strengthen their creative expression. All materials are provided by the foundation.
Workshops and courses are held at foundation spaces in the city of Sharjah and at six Art Centres across the emirate. The centres are located in Al Hamriyah, Al Dhaid, Al Madam, Dibba Al Hisn, Khorfakkan and Kalba.

In the city of Sharjah, workshops for two age groups (ages 6 to 10 or 11 to 15) usually take place on Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Collections Building in Al Shuwaiheen Arts Area. The three courses for autumn 2019 will be held on Thursdays from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the foundation’s art spaces in Al Mureijah Square. Sessions are conducted in both English and Arabic, depending on the needs of the participants.

Courses and workshops at the Art Centres are normally held Sundays to Tuesdays from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Some courses last a number of weeks, and age groups vary. The sessions are conducted in Arabic.
