Global Art competition winners to compete internationally

Global Art competition winners to compete internationally

Over 100 children participated in one of the largest national art competitions in the Kingdom at the Global Art Al-Falah Center in Riyadh on Saturday.
Children aged between 3-15 years old from Global Art branches in Riyadh, Jeddah and Yanbu participated in the competition.

Twelve winners were announced and rewarded with a trophy and a month of free training at the center.

The national winners will be competing alongside children from other Global Art branches around the world on Dec. 4 at Global Art Malaysia.

Samar Al-Maghrabi, CEO of Global Art Center, Riyadh, said: “We are pleased to organize the national competition for the third time in the Kingdom that is accessible to all including children with special needs. The aim of the competition was to enhance the quality of students’ creativity and create a great experience for them, which can help…them believe in their skills and encourage their self-confidence.”

Participants were evaluated on the basis of their skills in the techniques taught during the three weeks of intensive training at the Global Art Center’s various branches.

Fatima Al-Awad, owner of the Global Art Center in Yanbu, said: “We had an intensive program to train students in the basic skills that are taken into account in the criteria for selecting winners. The students were ranked according to our main categories: junior, foundation students and basic stages.”

The students regularly attended the classes to review lessons and go over the details of the competition, including what they planned to draw.

Al-Awad said that they are “ready to participate every year,” citing the results of the latest competition.

The Global Art Center in Yanbu was launched last February with the aim of becoming a distinguished fine arts academy.

The center offers age-based programs for girls and boys from the ages of 4 to 15 with strong curricula and the objective of training children to become professional artists.

Speaking to Arab News, Khulood, a 7-year-old participant’s mother, said: “We had a great experience with the Global Art team. They are very kind and welcoming to the children. My daughter prepared for the competition with full passion and support from the center. This competition helped my daughter to learn creativity and develop cognitive skills through art.”

Another participant’s mother, Reem, said: “The preparation for the competition was great for my daughter. I am grateful to Global Art for giving us this chance to join and allowing my daughter to experience something new while developing her artistic skills.”
