Sharjah, May 10, 2023
Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF 2023), a wondrous gathering of young book and art lovers, hosted a whimsical workshop titled ‘Painting on Glass,’ at its Expression Room, inviting children of all ages to embrace their creative spirit and delve into the world of artistry.
Guiding these young minds on their journey of self-expression were a group of professional artists who shared their knowledge of the intricate techniques used in painting on glass with the young participants of the session.
Equipped with glass sheets, paints, and brushes, each child had everything they needed to ignite their imagination. Each child was encouraged to take risks and explore their own unique style. Using blueprint paper paint beneath a glass, the instructors led them to ensure they produce works based on the sample at hand, with elements of personal touch resulting in one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
The energy and eagerness of the children filled the room, as they painted vibrant flowers, majestic animals, and abstract designs. Personalised guidance from the moderators helped each child stay the course and remain motivated, ensuring a sense of accomplishment as they completed their stunning works of art.
“It was a pleasure to witness the children’s boundless enthusiasm for the arts. The workshop provided the perfect platform for these young minds to flourish and learn new skills”, said one of the instructors.
The Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival continues to inspire and captivate children of all ages, offering a multitude of activities, from painting, hand making, storytelling sessions to book fairs and much more.
