Designed for participants aged 3 to 18, the Schools Programme offers a variety of workshops and tours for schools and community centres. The workshops, led by professional artists, aim to discover participants' talents, enhance their technical skills and knowledge, and build self-confidence. The tours, usually visits to ongoing Sharjah Art Foundation exhibitions and permanent installations such as Rain Room, function as stand-alone activities or provide important context for the activities in the workshops.
Interested schools and community centres can select the workshops and/or tours, dates and times that are most appropriate for them. Workshops usually last from one to one and a half hours, and tours can take 30 minutes to an hour. Sessions are conducted in Arabic and/or English, depending on the needs of the participants.
