College of the North Atlantic–Qatar (CNA-Q) formally opened its Art and Photography Exhibition and Competition this week, with the two of Qatari’s best known and celebrated artists, Fahad al-Madadeed and Hameed al-Siddiqi, in attendance.
The exhibition hosts over 100 works of art by students and staff under the theme “National Inspiration”. All members of the college community were encouraged to enter their works of art on the topics of what inspires them about being Qatari or living in Qatar, from architecture to native animals to desert landscapes and famous landmarks to famous leaders of the country.
Submissions will be judged by a panel of experts to determine the winners.
“As a national college, it is extremely important that we give students the opportunity to express their national pride through art and photography,” said CNA-Q president Prof Khalifa al-Khalifa, who opened the event. “Qatar has a long history of notable artists, painters and creators, and we encourage our students to find their skill in the arts. Creative extra-curricular activities are a vital part of students’ development to help them balance enjoyment with their studies and develop a full set of skills and experiences.”
