As much a place for learning new crafts as viewing art exhibitions, The Saudi Centre for Fine Arts has been around for 25 years. With a series of paintings by Mona Al-Qasabi of homely, everyday scenes in slightly blurred hues of reds and golds and a programme of engaging art courses, the art space offers a number of attractions to keep visitors coming back. Courses are divided up into male, female and children’s classes with subject focuses varying from photography to pottery, ceramics to calligraphy, oil painting to drawing and digital imagery. All staff members are bilingual in Arabic and English enabling visitors to participate in the workshops as well as peruse the exhibitions. Text by
