Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar (VCUarts Qatar), a Qatar Foundation partner university, will begin offering a range of free and exciting art and design classes from April 22 to May 20.
Titled, "Virtual Studios", the program has been launched to support the VCUarts Qatar community, and one of the courses, "Art in Support of our Heroes", will cater to all those who are bravely and selflessly working for the safety of all of Qatars citizens, such as medical and hospital staff.
Though the class is designed for frontline responders, it is open to anyone who would benefit from it. No previous art-making experience is needed, and only simple materials, such as a pencil or paper, or other basic art materials are required.
Participants will be invited to join a creative space where they will engage in artmaking, consider their emotional wellbeing, and how they are managing and mitigating the impact of the pandemic while reflecting on transitioning with a lack of connectivity and uncertainty, and while addressing issues such as fear and anxiety. "Art & Collective Conversations in Crisis" will provide an avenue and opportunity for the participants to interact, ask questions, and collectively support each other.
Other classes being offered by the "Virtual Studios" program will include "2D Animation for Kids". Children will learn creative techniques of shading using dotting, collage, and push and pull ink.
