Despite the summer recess, the caravan pursued its art activities and itinerary. After introducing art initiation sessions in schools during the academic year, the “ Traveling Art® ” program delivered courses to young students at the french cultural center, “Institut Français du Liban”, Beirut, from 2 July to 16 August 2019.
Because preserving our artistic heritage is paramount, Fondation Saradar is launching an unprecedented art program in schools, the “Traveling Art®” project, to initiate young generations to the understanding and appreciation of Lebanese modern and contemporary art, in a very innovative and interactive way, in classrooms and inside the caravan.
