Creating art in all its forms is a soothing, oftentimes meditative activity, and the best part is that it is never age-specific. You’re never too old to learn a new skill or explore a new art form, whether it’s something you can use for home décor like candle making or origami, or simply an activity that can help during times of stress, such as oil painting.

Cairo is filled with art studios and schools that host talented instructors striving to transfer their knowledge to others, and we’ve compiled some of them in the list below.
