Dubai, UAE, 24 March 2023: Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) is presenting a full programme of recreational activities and workshops, at the Al Jalila Cultural Centre for Children (AJCCC) Spring Camp that is taking placing under the theme ‘Spring into a World of Creativity’ over 2 weeks, the first from 27 to 31 March, while the second from 3 to 7 April. During the camp, the children will have an unforgettable spring experience that enables them to enhance their skills and expand their imagination.
Adel Omar, Senior Special Project and Media Director at AJCCC, said: “Children have broad horizons that enable them to transcend the boundaries of space and express their needs, desires, and aspirations. The Spring Camp provides participants with a set of artistic and cultural experiences that invest their time in developing their capabilities, motivating them to be creative, and enhancing their self-confidence.”
Dubai Culture, through its camps, has been keen to harness artistic abilities that develop the skills of children, refining their acumen and preparing them for the future. This embodies Dubai Culture’s role in achieving and developing the community, and creating a creative, sustainable and supportive ecosystem for children.
The camp seeks to provide a wide space for learning, through a group of innovative activities and events that are designed to meet the needs of children, and raise their level of knowledge and capabilities.
The camp opens its doors to children across three different age groups, with the first being children aged 4 to 6 who will take part in a series of interactive workshops that teach them the basics of pottery, the use of gypsum and cement in the arts, give them the opportunity to enjoy theatre, and experience photography with Nikon, in addition to discovering the aesthetics of music. Children between 7 and 9 will learn the art of marbling, self-portrait collage, pottery, theatre, as well as Nikon photography classes and decoupage. They will also learn to design t-shirts, in addition to learning sign language, amidst other activities.
The camp also invites children between the ages of 10 and 16 to discover the art of printmaking, pottery, tote bag design, greeting cards and theatre accessories. They will also learn the art of marbling, weaving, pouring, self-portrait collages, photography with Nikon and t-shirt design.
All children participating in the camp will take part in a special trip to Etihad Museum to learn about the country’s cultural and human heritage, the stages the UAE went through and the achievements it has achieved over half a century, as well as learning about the role of the museum in consolidating the concept and value of the union and national identity in the hearts of individuals and society.
All the activities and workshops included in the Spring Camp programme are held under the supervision of a group of experts, artists, and specialists in self-development and human development, within a safe environment that encourages children to unleash their imagination and advance their own skills.
