Students Graduate at the Art Jameel Programme for Traditional Arts, Cairo, Egypt

Congratulations to the 6th graduating class at the Art Jameel Programme for Traditional Arts and Crafts. Seventeen Egyptian students have spent the past two years learning about geometry and proportion in design as well as carving, making ceramics, painting, working with brass and and learning about the art and design market.

An exhibition of the student's work was on display at the Fustat Traditional Crafts Centre from 28 August - 1 September, and the works will be shown again at the British Council, Cairo in January 2017.

The programme was founded in 2009 and is the result of a collaboration between The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, the Egyptian Ministry of Culture, and Art Jameel. The programme is generously supported by Art Jameel.

To all of our young talented artists and artisans, and we look forward to seeing great things from each and every one of you in the near future.
