I’m always on the search for new things to do with kids. I’ve been hearing about The Art House for years, but only recently checked it out. And I’m so glad I did!
It’s located in Muqsha, off of Janabiya Highway, behind Domino’s Pizza. (Note that Waze hasn’t quite figured it out, but Google Maps works well.) It’s in an adorable converted house that the owner, Ilsa, has made into an amazing space for creativity and artistic exploration.
She has these fabulous pre-made patterns that kids can pick from.
For just 6BD per pattern, she’ll help the kids get started and pick out their favorite colors of precut glass. She will then grout the pieces and once they’re dry, you can take them home!
After the mosaics are done and waiting for grout, Ilsa introduces the kids to the “scratch patch,” or stone pool. It’s amazingly loud, but so much fun!!
The Art House offers sessions for adults as well with a huge variety of pre-made patterns - from camels to cityscapes to hearts and flowers and turtles and seahorses and everything in between.
Prices start at 20-30BD. This would be great Moms Day Out event! (hint, hint)
In addition to all of this, she also offers space for birthday parties.
