As the Year of Zayed comes to a close, an Abu Dhabi arts group has come up with a new and creative way of honouring the founding father of the UAE.

Blank Canvas Community is asking the city’s art lovers to help them paint and paper quill 100 pieces of art over four sessions.

These will then be arranged and mounted together to create a portrait of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan

Expression Sessions XII (collaborative painting and paper quilling) is part of a series of monthly gatherings that feature communal art, live music, spoken word and food.

The next meeting will be at Ethereal Photography studio on September 15, tickets are Dhs150 if you register online and Dhs170 on the door.

Entry includes an evening meal, painting tools and all necessary materials. Student discount is also available on request.

Each session is limited to only 25 people so don’t miss out on the chance to be part of this very special creative project.

From Dhs150. Sept 15, 4pm-8pm. Ethereal Photography, Fotouh Al Khair Mall
