Bait Al Baranda will soon launch its summer events 2019 at its premises on the Muttrah seafront. They are in the midst of preparing their summer children’s’ workshop, which will feature art classes from scrap art, where the participants will be given various car parts to work creatively on them to eco sea, where they will learn about the sea and marine life, various Omani fish, all aimed towards school student.
The summer workshop will commence from Sunday 7 July till Thursday 18 July 2019. The aim of this summer workshop is to inculcate in children the importance of extra curriculum activities in their daily lives. Instead of them being at home during these long summer school vacations, they could indulge in the arts in all its forms. An exhibition of their works will be showcased at a culmination party to be held on Monday 22 July for all participants.
Malik Al Hinai, Director of Bait Al Baranda commented that “Bait Al Baranda is privileged to host this yearly summer activity and this is our thirteenth such event. We have managed to identify a niche and that is children in our communities. We aspire to introduce and encourage new talent at all times, as art is a natural channel for nurturing children’s creativity, be it in the arts, science or technology. Our summer event last year was a success with over 120 children participating. Not only did we invite children from within the Muttrah community, but we also extended invitations to the Muscat community at large. Over the years they participated in various art activities mostly based under the theme ‘Be Green’. This year, we continue with the eco-friendly theme ‘Power of Colour’ and we expect the same enthusiasm from our young friends of Baranda”.
Application forms for registration have to be filled and signed by parents and will be available at Bait Al Baranda from Wednesday 29 May but parents could tentatively register by phone. Children can choose to participate in scrap art the first week or Eco Sea the following week or attend both, The weekly session is OMR10 per child.
The workshops will be conducted under the supervision of GUTech and Scientific College, Omani artists and staff of the museum will assist.
