The Museum of Islamic Art is organizing a number of workshops during the holy month of Ramadan aiming to engage the community in the museum’s activities especially children aged from 1 to 12 years. The program, taking place at MIA’s Education Center, includes pottery workshops and four sessions of an extensive 3-day summer program.
The museum has already held a workshop titled “Bibbidy Pottery Do!” during the first half of July for toddlers aged between 1 and 3 years in which they created their own masterpieces in the form of plates and enjoyed an interactive session of song and dance inspired by works from MIA’s collection. The workshop aimed to introduce them to mixed media and collage.
Another workshop for children titled “A long, long time ago” is taking place every Saturday during the month of July from 1 pm to 3 pm targeting children from 4 to 10 years. In this two-part workshop, children create their own pinch pots and decorate them with beautiful handmade patterns. This workshop is dedicated to educating children on the artistic traditions of the Ottomans; mainly, in the town of Iznik known internationally for its floral designs and çintamani pottery.
As for the “Let’s Love Summer” program, children aged between 6 and 12 years will be involved in gallery trails, art making, creative writing and many more activities related to the museum’s collection. The program will be divided into four sessions every Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday during the holy month of Ramadan from 11am to 2:30 pm.
Places are limited; therefore, reserving places for your children is a must. For more information and booking for the “A long, long time ago” workshop, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and for the “Let’s Love Summer” program please contact: email@example.com.
