This workshop is intended for children age 11 and above. Teens & pre¬‐teens learn about the life of girls in the Middle East through stories by famous Middle Eastern authors and through a fashion show/play with traditional and modern clothing. Participants learn how to write their names in Arabic and are given roles in a small play that reflect what their role would be in a Middle Eastern home today. This class can be for girls only or can be done for a mixed audience.
