School students across Doha are treated to an exclusive guided tour around Qatari artist Yousef Ahmad's latest exhibition in Katara, as part of an education program on his work. During the tour, the artist give students an insight into his exciting career, explaining that his first job as an art teacher at Qatar University inspired him to use many local materials in his artworks, and encouraged students to do the same.

Titled Yousef Ahmad: Story of Ingenuity, the exhibition highlights the Qatari artist’s body of work through a selection of his most striking artworks from his early career in the 1970s until today. Yousef Ahmad: Story of Ingenuity is located at the QM Gallery, Building 10, Katara and will be on display until Saturday 14th February 2015. Schools can register for a guided tour by emailing [email protected], and the artist himself will be visiting schools across Doha to deliver bespoke art workshops to students.
