United Arab Emirates
The nationwide A.R.M. Holding Children’s Programme launches
the second iteration of its in-classroom workshops. Following its success at
Art Dubai in March 2022, which saw over 180 students take part in bespoke
workshops, the programme will now expand to 80 schools across the 7 Emirates
and will reach over 4,500 students over the next five weeks, a significant increase from the first edition which
engaged 1,800 students.

The artist appointed
for this year’s edition of the workshops is Kenyan artist Cyrus Kabiru.
Entitled Art of Recycle, his workshops invite children to retrieve and
repurpose everyday materials from their homes and schools, and transform them
into works of art. Through these workshops, Cyrus challenges participants to
alter their perspectives and re-examine how everyday objects can be given a new
lease of life.

“We are delighted to
kick off today the A.R.M Holding Children’s Programme in schools. We feel that
now more than ever it is important to provide a range of educational
opportunities to nurture the next generation, and it is our belief that arts
education in particular, is uniquely positioned to foster creativity and
resilience. Having an artist of Cyrus’s calibre create the bespoke workshops
and being able to offer them freely and to a growing number of students will
positively impact the UAE’s education landscape and offering. In addition, we
are pleased to have Cyrus focus on the theme of sustainability, which is both
incredibly relevant and important in today’s society and central to A.R.M.
Holding’s mandate.” said Mohammad Saeed Al Shehhi, CEO of A.R.M.
Holding.

“Creativity is one of the most important skills that children
need to have for the future. There are so many studies showing that it’s a key
skill for future generations. Teaching this skill in school and giving them
(children) the opportunity to explore creativity is very important,” said
Principal, Dr. Chitra Joshi.

“Thanks
to you and your team for organizing such an amazing workshop.

Commendably
conducted workshop, a mixture of creativity, innovation and environment
conscious.”

seeing these kids have access to that outlet is great.”
