Three weeks long, the Omani Society for Fine Arts in Salalah–Dhofar, was the place to be for three workshops on different themes. Salalah-based artist and teacher Mayada Reehan started the ambitious program with a workshop still life paintings, the best way to discover and practice the basic techniques of drawing and painting. The results are marvellous.
Under guidance of Salalah-based artist and teacher Amani Al Hamiri, the participants were introduced in the technique of collage where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, creating a new whole. The results are surprising and always painting was involved.
The last workshop given by Arabic Calligrapher Ali Al-Baddah based in Kuwait, takes the participants on a journey of making modern art by using calligraphy. During the workshop it became very clear that the interaction between art techniques and calligraphy lead to freewheeling. This workshop, still in progress will finish on Thursday. The final results will be showed in al’arba tomorrow in a second part of ‘It’s all about Art.’
