April Monthly Art Challenge: Middle Eastern Art

Welcome to the April edition of our monthly series of art challenges, an ongoing journey through diverse cultures and artistic expressions. Each monthly installment in our series introduces young artists to a new world of creativity and knowledge.


This month, we’re delving into the rich cultural tapestry of the Middle East, offering young artists a unique opportunity to explore its fascinating artistry and creativity. In a time of unrest, it’s crucial to approach this exploration with cultural sensitivity and empathy, understanding the complexities and nuances of the region’s history and current challenges.


From intricate geometric patterns to breathtaking calligraphy and stunning architectural marvels, the art of the Middle East captivates with its beauty and depth. Join us as we discover the stories, techniques, and influences behind these captivating works, empowering young minds to express themselves through a myriad of artistic possibilities while fostering understanding and appreciation for this remarkable culture.


This is part of an ongoing collaborative project with fellow Apple Distinguished Educators Laurie Doran, Bethany Nugent, and Heather McCutcheon. We hope this project inspires all educators to bring creativity to the classroom.
