Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art!

To safely resume its activities during the pandemic, the Education and Wellness Department has decided to offer an abridged online program of our most popular workshops through the Zoom platform (link coming soon). Each class will be recorded and available throughout the entire week after the class if you happen to miss it.

Tuesday to Friday, July 27 to 30, 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.

This course will plunge you into Andalusia to explore the ornaments, wall decorations, and bas-relief carvings of the Alhambra palace. You will study, analyze, and reproduce these masterpieces on paper before sculpting them onto gypsum. Explore the history of the Islamic arts and their symbols as well as their immense influence on modern art. Participants will also discover pieces from the MMFA’s Arts of One World collection.

Please note that this class is giving in French only.

Instructor: Mohammed Makhfi, artist, calligrapher and art educator

To simplify your participation, the instructors have prepared lists of supplies you will need for the class, along with the Omer DeSerres product codes. After you have ordered them on-line, they can be delivered to your home by DeSerres or you can pick them up at the store. The prices vary according to the products you select.

There is a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 8 participants for each series. If the minimum is not reached, the series will be cancelled.
