Students Get Creative to Thank School Teachers
Deira City Centre’s ‘LOVE Teachers’ Campaign Showcases Artwork in Appreciation for Teachers and Schools
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 22 May 2012 – As the school year draws to a close, students are getting a chance to give appreciation to their teacher by submitting artwork to the ‘LOVE Art’ gallery at Deira City Centre. The ‘LOVE Teachers’ campaign will showcase young artist’s renditions of their favorite teacher or subject in the Bridge Gallery from May 22nd to 29th.
Students from schools in the local community were invited to draw or paint on the subject of why they love their teacher or school, or about their favourite class subject. In addition to showcasing unique pieces of art to give thanks for local teacher’s commitment to their students, the top three pieces of artwork submitted will be awarded with a mall GiftCard to both the student artist and their favourite teacher.
“The ‘LOVE Art’ gallery is a unique way to showcase artwork created in the community to residents and shoppers and embraces Deira City Centre’s urban and lifestyle offerings. Teachers commit a lot of their time and effort to their students, and the ‘LOVE Teachers’ campaign serves to thank them for their dedication as well as showcase the budding talent of young students,” said Fuad Al Najjar, Senior Asset Director, Asset Management Shopping Malls.
“The ‘LOVE Teachers’ campaign is a fun way to close the school year and look back on the successes it brought to students and teachers.”
The ‘LOVE Art’ gallery is a year-round initiative promoting the local and regional arts scene. Creative and exhibition space is granted to showcase artwork at no charge. Details on upcoming ‘LOVE Art’ exhibitions can be found on the Deira City Centre Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DeiraCityCentre.
