In addition to guided school visits led by Mathaf educators; Mathaf Voices offers guided visit for the public. There are storytelling sessions linked to themes in current exhibitions and workshops to help teachers to connect their curriculums with the current Mathaf exhibitions. 


Every year, Mathaf hosts the Students Art Competition and Exhibition that celebrates the imagination and artistic talent of Kindergarten to Grade 12 students (ages 5 to 18) from schools across Qatar. Students, teachers and parents are encouraged to explore modern and contemporary art together, with students creating work inspired by a particular theme. The winning works are presented in an exhibition open to the public.

Every child is born an artist. Children think creatively and by exposing them to arts education and cultural institutions at a young age, it nurtures innate talent.
