Overview

Sharjah Art Foundation offers a range of courses, workshops, excursions and other activities for individuals with physical, learning and developmental difficulties. Designed for participants aged three and above, the various sessions aim to help people with disabilities discover new ways of self-expression through art. All sessions are facilitated by experienced professionals in English and/or Arabic, depending on the needs of the participants. Most sessions take place in the Art for All Center, Al Mureijah Square, but some are held in Sharjah Art Foundation spaces or other venues.
