Design Camp with Nuqat
Design Camp was a collaboration between Nuqat and Art Studio Kwt. The workshop began by inviting its participants to explore their own visual vocabulary and culture through collage, bricolage, photos, sketching, mosaics and more.
They began by asking questions of ; How are the arts conceivably the best tool for design-related and community-building work we want to do in the 21st century?
Through exploration we can understand the importance of scripts harmonization, concept development, bricolage, visual design and simplification to convey messages that best represent us best within our own social spaces.
The use of concept mapping is used to mark the stages of the process throughout the workshop.

Ramadan Camp with Young Explorers
This four-week camp was a collaboration with the Young Explorer’s club. Various art projects where used to create curiosity in the students from simple activities to complex themes and stories. It was a pleasure working with the team at Young Explorers.
In this experimentally 3-day studio we investigated various forms of art making. Starting at 8:00 pm and going full blast for 72 hours nonstop. This was an explosion of creativity with multiple artists teaching classes in diverse mediums from weaving, painting, drawing, sculpting, graphic design, product design, and illustration. This process culminated with a small show at the end.
For the first time in Kuwait, a two-week program will introduce students to the art of storytelling through puppetry. Students will collaborate to develop a narrative while creating characters using art materials and found objects. Participants will have the opportunity to create a stage production with portions of the proceeds going towards supporting FSRI to spread awareness and support for Neurological Degenerative diseases. Our resident artist Samantha Anne Maggio, Executive Artistic Producer of Suspended Belief Theatre: @suspendedbelieftheatre will guide the students in a creative puppetry exploration and share her expertise in the puppetry arts. Children will Learn: How to trust in the process of making, to let go of all structures from their lives outside of the Atelier. This will enrich their aesthetic production and confidence in making. We will explore community, sharing known experiences, inventing characters, building props, storytelling and the dramatization of stories, puppet making, scene making, negotiation, and painting for theatre.

Time in Art and Design Evening (Lecture)
Time is in every part of the designed experience - and everything is designed. Projects and conversation will explore the ideas of how we perceive or senses (Biological Time), expressing your experiences through gesture or the bearing of information (Mechanical Time), proprioception (Agrarian Time) and lastly Open Works (Digital Time). We will examine the six distinct temporal dimensions: sequential structure, duration, planning, rate of recurrence, synchronization and temporal perspective through simple stop action animations.

Five (Art) Morning Meditations (outdoors)
Interpretations of our body and wellness are largely influenced by messages outside our actual inner body experiences, but we can learn to listen for the gap in our internal awareness and the influences that shape us. From there, we have more choices for growth and healing. Imagine your body being free of your, and others, external perceptions. Imagine your body free to act in space. Ages 20 & above
