In conjunction with the Arab Design Incubator, the falcon and/or horse themed art contests include original drawings as well as a coloring contest for the younger set.
The activities are free and open to all ADIHEX guests but contests target children ages 3 to 12.
Submissions will be judged by local artists and special prizes awarded to top winners in two categories: “Original Masterpieces” and “Coloring Talent” for each of two age groups: Under 7 and 8 to 12.
According to Marwa Hasan Khouri, of Abu Dhabi Police Community,
“I found this stand by coincidence and I’m so lucky I did. I did not have this opportunity during my childhood and I am grateful that he Foundation is giving this opportunity to my daughter Souad. This Foundation is tremendous in uncovering the deep treasure of creativity that has been buried in the traditional way of educating kids in the Arab world. I am sure that these activities and experiences will open so many doors for my daughter.”
Lisa LaBonte, President of the Arab Design Incubator states,
“His Excellency, Omar Saif Ghobash, a strong proponent for improving the participation in and the stature of visual arts and literature in the Arab world, has set up OSGALF in an effort to provide special creative activities that support and inspire Emirati youth. For our collective launch at ADIHEX, special thanks go to Ms. Lara Sawaya of Turret Middle East for providing such a fantastic venue and allowing us to provide such activities.”
