The Iznik Design and the Life Cycle of Plants will use the Iznik tiles design as a guide for recognizing the various stages of a plant's life cycle. After that, participants will create a diagram to explain what they have learnt. They will also get the opportunity to plant their own seed and track its progress in the provided plant journal.
Students will learn about MIA Architect I.M. Pei and how Islamic architecture inspired the museum's design in MIA Architect I.M. Pei. This course, Materials in Islamic Art, will look at how different pieces in the MIA collection are made up of different types of materials.
The Art of Illumination will look at the various decorative motifs that can be found in Islamic manuscripts. Through a Calligraphy Workshop on Geometric Patterns in Islamic Art, students will discover more about the importance of geometry in Islamic manuscripts.
NMoQ will also be hosting storytelling sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays. The dugong's underwater home and the obstacles they encounter will be explored through virtual storytelling. Following the narrative, there will be games and other exciting hands-on activities.
All workshops and storytelling sessions are free to attend, however you must register on Qatar Museums' website.
