Iranian painter and sculptor Yasmin Sinai is convinced that the workshop "Games of Colors" now underway at the Iranian Artists Forum gives people a chance to learn art in its correct form. The workshops have been organized by the Damonfar Company, the Iranian representative of France's Pebeo and Germany's Faber Castell, two companies that manufacture art materials.
"These workshops named 'Games of Colors' provide an opportunity for children and young adults to experience new methods of painting," Sinai said in a press release on Sunday.
Several pavilions have been set up in the courtyard of the forum, three of which are dedicated to children. "This year is the 250th anniversary of the establishment of Faber Castell. Therefore each day, a new issue related to nature is selected for children to paint, which is later merged with the number 250, the results of which have been amazing so far," she added.
"The fourth pavilion is dedicated to mothers for improving their manual dexterity. This has been the most successful part and gives mothers a chance to learn new things while their children are busy in other workshops.
"They learn how to make decorative items with simple items that are of course cheap and available, and mothers attend eagerly," she added.
The program, which has been underway since July 19, will be running until August 18.
The fifth pavilion introduces France's Pebeo and Canson, a French manufacturer of fine art paper and related products.
Damonfar launched the Damonfar Visual Arts Festival in 2006 to provide the facilities for young Iranian artistic talent. The festival is dedicated to artists less than 25 years of age.
