The Art of Language: Arabic Academy’s Studio Day

July 3, 2014

On Wednesday afternoon, Arabic Academy students allowed their creativity to blossom through avenues of colors and depictions! During cultural activity time, Arabic teacher Majida Hourani’s taught the class how to create and fashion unique pieces of art using themes and symbols from the Middle East. Bright colors exploded on paper as the students worked on their masterpieces. Students depicted everything from intricate patterns to real-life scenes inspired from their own lives in their artwork, clearly giving evidence to the fact that some of them had the potential could go on to become studio art majors or maybe even the next Modigliani. Finally, the students increased their knowledge of vocabulary related to art and drawing as they presented on their masterpieces at the end of the class.
