Syrian American artist and architect Mohamad Hafez encapsulates in his art memories of his homeland and its turmoil. Working with a combination of found objects, paint, and scrap metal, Hafez creates surrealistic Syrian streetscapes that are architectural in appearance and politically charged in content.

During this hands-on, multisensory workshop, you will explore Hafez’s architectural creations, while taking in the scent of Syrian spices, and apply the artist’s fast-paced drawing and painting techniques to create your own two-dimensional cityscape based on memory and emotion.

No prior experience is necessary and materials are included in the fee.

The hands-on session will take place in the Materials Lab on the Lower Level.

$15 materials fee. Registration is required and space is limited; registration will open on this form, beginning on Monday, April 8, at 10am. Materials fee must be paid to confirm registration. Please email [email protected] or call 617-495-1440 to join the waitlist. Minimum age of 14.

This workshop is one of three events related to the 2024 Norma Jean Calderwood Lecture at the Harvard Art Museums, featuring an artist talk by Mohamad Hafez, “Preserving Memory and Loss” on April 17. Please see the lecture listing for more information about the related programming.
