  1. I think I might know two people actually. Thank you for sharing this Andy, very nice of you. 🙂

    • Jado,
      That’s cool that you know 2 people who might be able to apply! My pleasure. As a lover of Oman and art, I think it’s the least I could do to post this job opportunity, right? 😉

    Hi Andy ! I do portraits in Pastels…Would love to send in some pics of my work…I dont have a professional degree in Art but am an architect by profession …Do i qualify ?Thanks

    • Sharmila,
      There are plenty of artists out there without a professional degree in Art. The artist is determined by his/her work rather than their degree so if your work is good, yes, you qualify! 🙂

  3. I am sorry to ask this question in this place, but my husband and I have recently moved to Muscat and I have recently discovered your very interesting blog. My husband is skilled and talented painter, but we have been looking hopelessly for painting materials (Fabric, water colors, etc..). Do you have any idea where we can by these materials? Many thanks in advance for your reply.
