Basic Silk Painting Workshop!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Alhamdulillaah we had a special workshop for our girls homeschoolers and non homeschoolers today and it was such a wonderful experience Maashaa Allaah! We got to know  from here a professional Art Community called MAPS in Doha was offering some nice casual classes. We approached them and asked them to do a special class for us and they readily accepted.

The girls learnt the very basics of silk painting, techniques, methods, and they also did a craft to take home. 

First they selected a design on a frame and sprayed water and started off by painting the background.

 Then they all were taught how to use the stone salt on the panting. 

They were taught step by step how to paint the design, dry them and also how to remove the masterpiece at the end. They also provide the girls with notes on the techniques and steps of silk painting.

The girls got a small snack during a break and also had a draw and one of the girls won a silk painted cushion

These are the final products of the kids,

Maimoonah was happy and liked her work. This is her's and we are planning of making a cushion for her using her silk painting Inshaa Allaah!

All in all the workshop was conducted in a very professional manner, all materials were provided and they catered to our needs like not drawing or painting figures with souls and provided a very comfortable environment for the girls. We thank Rashmi Agrawal the president of the art community and Natasa the instructor for a job well done with the girls. Looking forward to many more classes inshaa Allaah!

They are ever ready to arrange any such classes for any group of kids or adults. So contact Rashmi if you need to arrange a class or or course on Tel: +974 5560 3845,  

These out of home classes are making a big difference for Maimoonah these days as she is growing and needs some challenging changes I guess. To be able to participate in something like Enhancing a skill out of home in a proper environment is indeed a blessing for us homeschoolers! There are many arts and crafts classes and workshops happening around Doha, if you are living in Qatar, keep checking this page for updates on Arts and Crafts Classes and Workshops and choose a suitable one for your kids!
