Field Trip to the Jameel Art Center

The interactive visit to the gallery motivated the pupils to engage more intensively with the subject of art.

On 06.11.19 the students of grade 8 visited the Jameel Art Center in Dubai with their teachers Mrs. Walaa Tawfik, Mrs. Antonia Gadzo and Mr. Julian Kleij as part of the art lessons. Here they had the opportunity to get to know a variety of works by local and international artists.

The guided tour through the gallery with its modern paintings, graphic drawings, sculptures, installations and architectural works brought the students closer to the extended concept of art and inspired them to further ideas for their own practice. Some of the artworks were even hands-on.

In the subsequent workshop with the artist Engy Mahdy, the students were able to apply, deepen and expand the knowledge and drawing skills they had acquired in art classes. The students made drawings on the subject of optical illusion.
