Art Camp

At Art Camp children will be surrounded by a range of outstanding and rare works including calligraphy, paintings, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and arms.  All these treasures are drawn from The Farjam Collection and on view in the space at DIFC.


Children will spend their summer exploring the fascinating world of Islamic art through worksheets, games and hands-on craft activities.  A huge variety of activities will be offered throughout Art Camp so children can try something new every day.
