AUS hosts ceramics exhibition with Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services
The AUS Community Services Department held a ceramics exhibition featuring ceramic work done by children under the care of Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services (SCHS) at the AUS Student Center on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. The featured pieces were crafted by 16 children with special needs from SCHS.
The exhibition also displayed handmade jewelry made by the children and featured a live demonstration to show the process they follow in making the ceramics and handmade jewelry, all for sale at the exhibition.
"In partnership with Sharjah City Humanitarian Services (SCHS), we continue to reach out to the community to raise awareness about humanitarian issues. OSA and SCHS join hands in many projects that strengthen our ties and provide volunteering opportunities for our students," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. "The ceramic exhibition we hosted on campus is aimed at enlightening the society's youth that children with special needs are equally creative given proper attention and guidance. These children receive special care but they are just like any of us who have their own talents, skills and strengths. I very much admire the ceramic work on display; it is an expression of these children's creativity," she added.
