Abu Dhabi - Arab Today

Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation, in collaboration with The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, PSTA, has launched the Abu Dhabi Festival Islamic Arts Exhibition 2015.
The art exhibition is a month-long exhibition at The Galleria on Maryah Island, showcasing a series of artworks by Abu Dhabi schoolchildren inspired by the traditional architecture of the UAE's capital.
Examining the architectural heritage of Abu Dhabi, the exhibition is a culmination of a series of workshops delivered by the PSTA in January, which looked at Abu Dhabi within the context of the Islamic world, and investigated how the principles of traditional architecture have been applied in a range of environments today.
Hoda I. Al Khamis-Kanoo, Founder of ADMAF and the Abu Dhabi Festival, said, "At ADMAF, we seek to preserve and uphold traditional arts by engaging students through hands-on learning so that they may become the guardians of history. Through practical workshops with our esteemed partners, The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, school children of Abu Dhabi were able to experience geometrical tools, mathematical reasoning and problem solving, equipping them with the knowledge and practical skills to maintain the long tradition of Arab thinking." Charles Martinez, General Manager of The Galleria on Al Maryah Island, and VP of Gulf Related, said, "We are honoured to have the opportunity to host the Abu Dhabi Festival Islamic Arts Exhibition at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island and celebrate traditional art and youth development. Abu Dhabi residents and visitors are constantly in search of new means of artistic expressions, and we are delighted to provide such experiences at The Galleria through collaborations such as the one with ADMAF, a key catalyst of the capital's educational and cultural scene." The Prince's School of Traditional Arts was founded in London in 2004 by HRH The Prince of Wales as one of his core charities. It developed from the Visual Islamic and Traditional Arts Programme (VITA) that was established at The Royal College of Art in 1984.
