11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Jean-Paul Najar Foundation


Sculptor Jene Highstein used different materials like bronze, stone, steel and wood to form abstract objects inspired by the natural world. But drawing was also an important part of his practice.

Join JPNF for a fun workshop that lets children get their hands dirty!

Children learn different drawing techniques that help them to depict space, mass and weight on paper and then move on to clay, to create sculptures related to their drawings.

The workshop is suitable for 6 – 12 years old.

Donation: 150 AED per participant
