Jalal's Art Trip 2011-Inspirations from the deep

Dear Art Lovers

Jalal’s Art Trip is Jalal Luqman's initiative to give back to the community, by sponsoring 10-15 amateur artists by giving them that push to cross over to become professional artists.

Since its conception, Jalal’s Art Trip has as taken its students to Hatta, Margham, Jazirat Al Hamra and Sir Banyas Island. Many of my participants have gone on to become professional artists or professionals in the art and culture field, supporting our national initiative to become an art and culture capital on a global scale.

This year, Jalal’s Art trip 2011 takes its participants to the bottom of our Emirati Sea, to witness the beauty and inspiration of our magical underwater world. “Inspirations from the Deep” is the theme of his year’s JAT; this will give the artists the ability to portray the mysteries of the deep as well as possible indications to our environment and how to preserve it.
