World Art Dubai is the harbinger of introducing affordable and contemporary art to the middle east. Since its inception, it has completely revolutionized the art industry, not just in the middle east but also throughout the world. By making art accessible and affordable, World Art Dubai is bridging the gap between the world of art which was once thought to be a luxury attainable only by the elite and the masses. With every consecutive year, the footfall at the art fair has only increased, an indication of the massive hit this initiative is.
Since we find ourselves in rare and unforeseen circumstances, with ample time on our hands, we can make this quarantine a productive one by learning new skills and channeling our uncertain and anxious thoughts into creating lasting art that we can reflect upon once this lockdown ends. To do the same, World Art Dubai is offering DIY online workshops where you can challenge your artistic bone! Keeping in the mind the difficulty, these online workshops are suitable for all beginners and require items you’d already have lying around the house making this activity engaging, fun and hassle-free! From online tutorials that’ll help you revamp spaces of your house to learning the simple yet masterful technique of blending oil pastels perfectly to produce your desired hue and finally using mundane ingredients such as coffee and turmeric and transforming them into pieces of art, there is an on-line tutorial for every age, need and mode available on the World Art Dubai website which we will be linking below. Apart from these comprehensive tutorials, WAD is also offering a virtual tour of the fair which is a glimpse of what one can expect at the art festival.
