Visitors of all ages were invited to Madrasat Addeera to discover silkscreen printing – the unique artistic style that made Andy Warhol famous. These free, hands-on workshops taught how to create handmade silkscreen-printed artworks in the pop-art style.
The Silkscreen Studio was a pre-activation of the FAME: Andy Warhol in AlUla exhibition by the Andy Warhol Museum which opened in February 2023 at Maraya. The workshops were developed in collaboration with educators from The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburg, USA.

This hands-on silkscreen studio workshop was open to the general public, families, and kids of all ages to create their own unique silkscreen prints of popular products and places. It also showed how pop artists were inspired by everyday life and used everyday objects to create works of art.
Using art to raise awareness about endangered animals, this silkscreen print workshop taught students how to create a silkscreen print of the Arabian Leopard in the style of pop artist Andy Warhol.
