A group of 15 Semester-Six Applied Communication students from the HCT-Fujairah Women’s Campus (FJW) have gained a greater appreciation for the talents of Emirati artists after a field trip to the Abu Dhabi Art Festival, which took place from November 16-19.
Students were able to see, explore and experience the artwork of a wide range of Emirati artists who were exhibiting in the Gateway, Modern & Contemporary, Bidaya, Beyond galleries and other venues.
Special visits were made to the booths of Hunar Gallery, AB43 Contemporary, Cuadro Fine Art Gallery and Salwa Zeidan Gallery where the FJW students had the chance to talk to curators and artist about the works and their inspirations. The students also got to talk to Azza Al Qubaisi about her experiences, methods and inspirations.
The students were most grateful to the Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation (ADMAF) for organizing the field trip.
