Ahram Online, Tuesday 13 Dec 2011

Fayoum Winter Academy invites young artists to apply for two scholarships for their programme of classes with international and local artists

Fayoum Winter Academy opens registration for its creative art courses to start in February and coordinates two scholarships.

Fayoum Art Academy is a project motored by the Fayoum Art Centre. Located in Wadi El-Rayan in Fayoum, the centre was founded by painter Mohamed Abla in 2006. The centre is inspired by the International Summer Academy in Salzburg, where Abla teaches.

The centre's website states: "The aim of the Academy is to explore different materials and experiment with the environment to produce unique art pieces that could inspire other artists later."

For the sixth time, the academy opens doors to all artists and art lovers this winter who want to explore the world of painting, printmaking, sculpture, cartoon, performance and installation art.

Art lecturers from Germany, Denmark, Switzerland and Egypt will give the classes beginning 3 February until 15 March.

Two students are granted scholarship to Salzburg every year.

The application deadline is 31 December 2011.
