New Art Club

Greetings from the New AWN Art Club!

This is a club where people who have an interest in painting meet at one place and paint together. This art club is not only for beginners but also for those who already have been painting or who had experience in the past. So it’s more like a coop, teaching and learning from each other. As a group, we desire to understand and participate in the creative process. We go over some basics as well as some painting techniques to help the beginners get a great start.

We do organize group tours to the local galleries to view paintings and learn different mediums from the established artists. Also, we invite seasoned artist to give us demonstration during our regular art sessions. We had an opportunity to have a presentation from an art therapist about how art influences the emotional state of a person. Learning variety fields of art would arm us with plenty of knowledge to be successful as a good painter.

Sometimes we would paint at the National Theater Studio on Tuesdays. This is a good place for the members who do paint with acrylic or oil medium which requires space with good ventilation.

We meet every Monday morning at the Farn Café, Manarat Al Saadiyat from 10 am to noon. We are very lucky to find this beautiful surrounding venue where we are able to paint every Monday. There’s no fee to use the facility and no fee to be a member of the AWN Art Club. But the café would appreciate us to patronize their business. We will continue meeting during the summer months at the same place and same time. There will be no agenda but paint together for two hours. But Julia and Salwa, who are the coordinators, will be there for critiques and demonstrations during the summer months.

Space is limited so please contact Julia ASAP at

Happy painting!
