Our vision at ArtStudioKWT is to develop a lifelong learning community in the Middle East, bound together by arts-based teaching and learning.
ArtStudioKWT is a platform for students and teachers to cultivate a self-reflective practice through an arts-based exploration. Participants have opportunities to work on drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpting, and design projects to develop technical skills and critical thinking. We aim to create an environment that nurtures self-expression within a community of lifelong learners.
We at the ArtStudioKWT embrace diversity. Our classes range from artisan crafts to fine art experimentations, supporting the shifting needs of our inclusive community.
Jawaher and Robert, co-founders of ArtStudioKWT, spent 12 years training and over 15 years teaching in art and design institutions. Their three daughters, Noor, Lulu, and Jood, have also actively participated in co-teaching, supporting, and conducting individual tutorials supporting the mission of the ArtStudioKWT. This unique shared reality has created a rich, meaningful environment. It enriches individuals participating in their projects and organizations struggling to find a nurturing environment that helps build momentum for their purpose.
Creativity, Awareness, Community.
ArtStudioKWT is an interdisciplinary educational art institute aiming to enhance an individual’s self-awareness, skill, and connectivity to the larger community. We provide classes for kids aged 5 to 100+. Our goal is to help people explore their creativity through various mediums. It varies from drawing, painting, printing making, and sculpture. We have developed specialty classes from design thinking to art therapy, giving us a broad-reaching goal of expansion into the grand design community.
We also work with local artists and art educators; we provide them a space to teach and create their education curriculum. We are also bridging the gap by creating lasting partnerships with NGOs such as En.v and Loyac, ENGN, Local Gardening Group, Ana (battered woman), and Charity organizations (Second Chance, KAN).
Our international partnership with an artist outside of Kuwait has allowed us to bring educators from India and New York to Portland to teach adults and children. We have also opened our space as a gallery for local artists to exhibit and sell their work.
We also teach design thinking principles to organizations and young adults to broaden their critical thinking and problem-solving principles.
We also operate as an entity that interventions. Our space is available for Charitable organizations and teacher training. We hope to foster a stronger, more inclusive art community by opening our space to various needs.
As part of our community outreach program, we have a monthly open studio day when artists and the community can gather in the space to meet and create together.
