The NYUAD Art Gallery invites young people and their families to create artwork inspired by Ebtisam Abdulaziz’s work. Abdulaziz uses her knowledge in science and mathematics to create art using lines, shapes, and geometry. In this workshop, participants will learn how to combine different lines and geometrical shapes to create a 3-dimensional image with an illusion of dynamics.
