Her Royal Highness Princess Rajwa Bint Ali Opens Art Exhibition at the Children’s Museum (Amman, Jordan- November 2007) Under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Rajwa Bint Ali, the Children's Museum opened its first art exhibition on Monday, November 19th. The exhibit will be open to the public until Monday, November 26th. The exhibition presents works by children of different age groups that participated in the museum’s varied studio activities and workshops. In "A Journey Through the Art World", children explored the arts of several historical periods through painting and experimentation; in "My Crazy Book of Colors" children discovered colours through various activities to understand color theory and in "Creating a Story" they explored different approaches to illustrating and presenting their story; and in "Paper Art" they experimented with paper products to make art out of raw and recycled paper. In addition, the art studio hosted a series of Meet the Artist workshops, whereby children worked alongside prominent Jordanian artists to produce artwork, broadening children’s exposure to contemporary creative expression in Jordan. These workshops included “My City” sculpture workshop with Khalid Khreis, a "Mono Print Workshop" with artist Jihad Al Ameri and a Watercolors Workshop" with Ibraheem Al-Khateeb. Ms. Hanya Salah, the Children’s Museum Director, commented on the exhibition, “I hope this will be the first of many more exhibits showcasing the works of children participating in CMJ’s art studio as we continue to offer a range of programs to encourage children’s creativity and stretch the limits of their imagination. Through its fun and interactive programs and exhibits, CMJ seeks to encourage children and their families to experiment with and discover new interests. I hope the public will enjoy these exuberant and joyful works as much as we enjoyed learning and exploring with the children.
