Where: Time Square Centre 
How much: AED 50 (aged 6 – 12), RSVP to


Art Summer Camp For Teens and Adults

There are so many summer camp options around the UAE but how about a summer camp that both your teens and you (hubby included, of course) can be part of? You can expect a wide range of fun activities from drawing, painting, sculpture, to pottery on the wheel and unconventional jewellery making, and if focusing on art concepts is your thing, some sessions will focus on examples from art history illustrating different styles and ideas. Who says summer camps are only for kiddies?

When: Sunday, 26 June – Thursday, 4 August
Where: DUCTAC, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai
How much: AED 250 per day, AED 1250 per week (materials included)

Sugar Art

Who’s in for a sweet treat this summer? We sure are! Head over to Dragon Mart 2 where you will get a taste of (literally) the live performances of traditional Chinese sugar painting!

Better still, delicious sweets will be served after the show – we love!
