We were proud at Dahareez Art to conduct a creative writing workshop using Ibtihaj Al Harthi's Mah and Me as a point of reference. This initiative came as a collaboration between the Italian Embassy in Oman and the Ministry of Education. We presented a creative writing workshop based on Mah and Me. The author/illustrator Ibtihaj Al Harthi read the book with the children, taught them basic story structure, then the children engaged in writing their own adventures based on visual prompts.
The Italian artist Marco Soma taught the kids how draw fishes with his own art technique. The children had the opportunity of trying Marco’s real tools and experiment with fish character design.
Here are some images from the event ....
