Stuck at home with nothing to do? Rather than visiting your local mall for the 5th time this week, Doha News has listed a range of interactive activities and places you can visit while staying safe.
Qatar Museums have mobilised to organise a number of exciting exhibitions and programmes suitable for Dohans across the city.
‘A Falcon’s Eye: Tribute to Sheikh Saoud’ is a unique exhibition at the Museum of Islamic Art, showcasing objects that have never been displayed in Qatar before. The event is now finally open to the public. Register on their website and book your ticket now!
MIA will also be hosting an exhibition displaying rare books to celebrate the Qatar France Year of Culture. It will be taking visitors through 500 years of French cuisine all at the MIA library’s gastronomy section.
The museum will also be hosting various calligraphy classes in September teaching a variety of different styles including Nastaliq, Kufic, and Diwani. Classes will also include Lino printing, watercolours, geometry, and much more.
A three-month exhibition starting on the 4th of September and ending on November 13th, is being hosted by Mathaf. Children will be given opportunities to explore art through storytelling and taking part in hands-on learning activities.
Also, artist Ismael Azzam will be providing art lessons in Mathaf, where participants will learn new drawing techniques using pencil, charcoal, and paint.
