The House of Islamic and Mediterranean Culture in Silves will host, on October 22nd and 23rd and on October 29th and 30th, two sessions of the workshop for the initiation of watercolor drawing and painting – Traces and Colors of the Maghreb – guided by the Moroccan artist Moulay Youssef El Kahfaï.

The action, which takes place on the occasion of the presentation of the painting exhibition “The drawing of words”, by that artist, is promoted by the Al Mouatamid Ibn Abbad Association, in collaboration with the Municipality of Silves.

Encourage people of different ages and backgrounds for the creative challenge of pictorial expression with watercolor, in a playful and educational context, provide basic drawing methods that encourage trainees to new forms of plastic expression and highlight the deep interconnection between the drawing line and the gestures of colors in a form of artistic expression so little practiced nowadays are the main objectives of this studio.

Methodologically and technically, the first day of the workshop will focus on an introduction to basic watercolor drawing and watercolor painting techniques, and the second day on other watercolor painting techniques and the development of individual processes.

Registration for the studio includes two lunches with a Moroccan-influenced menu.

For registration and additional information, interested parties should contact the Al Mouatamid Ibn Abbad Association at 919334550 or email [email protected].
