The work, which occupies two walls and is available for purchase, follows a unique art session in which 18 artist-volunteers from ZeeArts joined 20 special needs children from Senses to work on inspiring paintings under the theme Happiness, Kindness, Love and Generosity.
In the bid to raise funds for the Senses centre, more than 50 are being displayed and sold from now until July 31 at R Gallery, The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery.
“We are honored and delighted to be a part of this superb initiative, giving back to the community and supporting the Senses Centre who do such commendable work,” he says.
“I would like to share heartfelt thanks to all those volunteer artists who joined us for the project, who made such difference to these children’s live.
“We hope to do the same by featuring the pieces for sale. I implore all to visit the exhibition and see the fantastic work these children have created.”
Head of ZeeArts, Zaahirah Muthy, reflected those sentiments. “Ramadan is a time for reflection and giving - it resonates with all,” she says.
The pieces range from abstract paintings to impressionist skylines, fun portraits and nature scenes.
“The art sessions bring true joy to the children” adds Dr. Lina Owies, General Manager of the Senses Residential and Day Care Centre for Special Needs.
