Workshop Painting

Ali Sabri

#Painter from Irak

As a self-taught painter, I discovered the pleasure of painting at a very young age. I do most of my work on canvas but I also paint on glass or directly on walls. My artistic journey began when I was 6 years old and I discovered drawing.


I became familiar with technical oil painting very quickly and since then I keep improving myself every day.

I arrived in Belgium in 2015 and I had the opportunity to present and exhibit my work in several renowned places such as the CC Strombeek, the Zandloper in Wemmel, the Boghossian Foundation, the SMAK in Ghent and the Z33 in Hasselt.

Patries Wichers

Patries Wichers was born in 1959 in the Netherlands from Indonesian parents.

She trained as a painter in the Royal Art Academy of ’s-Hertogenbosch (NL) with a degree in Pedagogy and Didactics for artists.

Until 2000, she worked on a painting career with exhibitions and grants. Patries Wichers worked also in fashion and theatre and thanks to this experience still draws a lot of inspiration for working with children


MUS-E brings professional artists in education together with children and teachers to go on a voyage of discovery within their artistic profession. 

MUS-E artist Patries Wichers welcomes painter Ali Sabri in the fourth grade class of the primary school Baron Steens. The project creates a dialogue between the kids through painting and drawing.
