Summer Camp 2022 is back at Tashkeel with 2 weeks of new workshops for young artists and designers. Each workshop ranges is led by a teaching artist in the UAE, and participants will take home their creations after every workshop!

To sign up for the full week of workshops at a discounted rate, go here.

This workshop will give room to engage with a selection of regional folklore, be immersed in the world of printmaking and explore the art of visual stroytelling. Participants will take inspiration from mythological characters that have been significant to the cultures in the Gulf and the Middle East to produce an edition of 2-colour RISO prints. This illustration exercise will prompt participants to experiment with composition, mark making and colour through collage, drawing, transfer techniques and printing as they create their mythical works of art.
