The Dubai International Art Centre (DIAC) will host an exclusive exhibition of paintings, mixed media and sculptures by a select group of six students from 1st to 11th May, 2013.
According to Ayesha Chen McKeever, Chairwoman, DIAC, the exhibition is an annual event where highly imaginative students attending classes at DIAC display their work. and win superb prizes. “Arts education has been integral to DIAC and we are proud to showcase works of our highly talented students. The response to such programmes in the past has been extremely encouraging and we hope the forthcoming event will be equally successful. Every semester, our dynamic faculty serves different age groups through unique courses helping students to learn new skills while improving existing ones”.
The participants this year are prize winners from the last students’ exhibition and include Alexandra Williams, Rawya Al Malik, Richa Singh, Lieve Hommelen, Tracy Turner and Marie Noujaim. Ayesha said: “All our courses are researched, structured and focused on developing one or more aspects of a student’s skills. We are well aware that each student has different capabilities, needs and expectations and hence blend the fun of imagination with the learning required for advancement. Our centre’s skilled staff combines widespread experience and expertise to groom extraordinary talents.
Right from its inception, the DIAC has been one of the emirate’s most respected institutions, having served the arts community in Dubai since 1976, providing space to learn, practise and display a wide repertoire of art activity.
