ABOUT THE MAWAHEB STUDIO
Mawaheb from Beautiful People is an art studio for the determined ones from 16 years and above. The studio suitably located in the culturally rich Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood previously known as the Al Bastakiya, is a space where student artists can learn artistic skills and develop their self confidence in a relaxed safe environment.
Our welcoming atmosphere also ensures that we treat our students as individuals with freedom of thought and action. Every student artist can apply annually for a minimum of 1 day per week and maximum of 5 days per week. The year runs from September through to June.
To encourage each individual regardless of disability to reach their highest potential through art and aid in the development of necessary life skills.
To break down the boundaries and stigmas associated with the determined ones, by integrating them into society and demonstrating that each individual can be creative in their own unique way.
What our artists have to say:
Everyone at Mawaheb is always working hard to be the best they can be, My Mawaheb friends are like everyone else; we all have feelings. We feel loss, sorrow, pain, happiness and love. We have hopes and dreams for our future and want to be accepted and included in society. Our determination is what drives us to work hard to achieve this and Mawaheb is always there to guide and support us through art.
My Mawaheb family has made me the happiest I’ve ever been. I feel like I’m gaining my confidence and motivation, as if I’ve been given a second chance at life.
“Mawaheb is the best place in the world, we are family and we create beautiful things, come and join us!”
"At Mawaheb, I like meeting my friends and I love to dance and sing and chill out doing yoga. I can be myself. When people like my art I rejoice."
