Dealing With Back to School Anxiety? Here’s Some Help.

 

Back to school anxiety is a common experience for both parents and children. Summer is ending, and anxious feelings are normal for kids who are returning to school, changing schools or, if kindergartners, starting school for the first time.

Join professional counseler Heena Khan, of Uplift Counseling, to learn how you can help your child better manage these feelings. The workshop is free; however, you do need to register if you plan to attend. Please register by sending an email to tmwf@tmwf.org.

Please share this event with your family and friends. We appreciate your support!

TMWF’s Islamic Arts Revival Series Presents Connecting Pattern – Exploring Islamic Art and Geometric Design

Coming August 23-28, 2018, TMWF’s Islamic Art Revival Series is pleased to present its new program, Connecting Pattern, a series of workshops exploring Islamic Art and geometric design and its connection across subjects including mathematics, science and nature, history, architecture, and cultural borders. Through a series of Educator Workshops, educators and administrators from all subjects and age groups will learn how to apply principles from Islamic geometry across the curriculum. For the public, a series of workshops are also available and open to all interested in Islamic art and its influences across the world.

Connecting Pattern 2018 is a collaborative effort with The Art of Islamic Pattern, and in partnership with Big Thought and the Creative Arts Center of Dallas.

Educator Workshops:

The Connecting Pattern Educator Workshops 2018 are a series of TEKS and Common Core aligned 2-day workshops for educators of all levels and backgrounds (K-12, Community College, and University). Taught by a highly sought-after international team of artists from the Art of Islamic Pattern, these workshops will explore deeper structures and connecting patterns across cultures and histories, for use across the curriculum.

After attending the educator workshop, participating teachers and administrators will be able to incorporate their learning into the curriculum to help the students develop a solid grounding in the language of symmetry, introduce them to the principles of free-hand biomorphic design (also known as Arabesque), and learn to integrate these more fluid designs with the geometric pattern.
 

There are two dates for the 2-day intensive workshops:

  • The first session runs August 23-24, 9AM-5PM both days.
  • The second session runs August 25-26, 9AM-5PM both days.

Workshop fee is $200. Fee covers materials used in workshop, for participants to keep, and food for both days.

Please note registration is required prior to the event and prior to payment. You can register herehttps://goo.gl/forms/sAQp2zNgXerHavUe2

Location: Big Thought
1409 S Lamar St #1015, Dallas, TX 75215

Public Workshops

Discover how patterns of profound beauty and subtle complexity can be created from the simplest of means and develop practical skills in the arts and crafts of the Islamic world. In these unique skills-based classes, students use traditional methods to explore a range of classic Islamic designs from around the world and learn how to integrate freehand biomorphic motifs (Islimi/Arabesque) with geometric pattern.

Workshops will be held August 27 & 28th. Each session is 2.5 hours and participants are welcome to attend as many workshops as they would like.

Times:
August 27: 10AM-12:30PM, 2-4:30PM, 6:30-9PM
August 28: 10AM-12:30PM, 2-4:30PM, 6:30-9PM

Recognizing Our Peace Champions

Please join us at TMWF’s 7th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon on Wednesday May 9, 2018 at the DoubleTree by NorthPark. We will be celebrating and honoring all women role models that brighten our lives and improve our communities.  TMWF has chosen three honorees from local DFW leaders whose work aligns with the mission of TMWF in its empowerment, promotion, and support of ALL women and their families for the ultimate goal of stronger communities.

Yulise Reaves Waters is a Dallas Assistant City Attorney and Community Courts Prosecutor. Her desire to strengthen communities led her to co-found the first felony community court in Dallas County, the Second Chance Community Improvement Program Court (SCCIP). The SCCIP community prosecutors work with law enforcement and community organizations to assist young criminal offenders through life and career counseling to help them rebuild their lives and become productive citizens. Ms. Reaves Waters’ dedication as a public servant has earned her various accolades and recognitions from the City of Dallas, her alma mater as a distinguished SMU alumna, the Dallas Business Journal’s “40 under 40” young professionals, and the Oak Cliff Community Development Corporation for helping to renew the Oak Cliff Dallas community.

 

 

 

Hala Halabi is ICNA Relief Dallas Refugee Services’ Director.  She began as a volunteer in 2011 focusing on developing ICNA Dallas’s food pantry, refugee facilitation, and car donation programs. The success of these programs, established Ms. Halabi and ICNA Relief Dallas as a trusted partner in the local Arab communities.  When Syrian refugee families arrived to the DFW area, Ms. Halabi was appointed as the Director of Refugee Facilitation.  Her tireless efforts empowered the newcomers’ to successfully settle and integrate into their new community.

 

 

 

 

 

Aisha Waheed is the Chairman and Chief Operations Officer of Maruf, a non-profit refugee resettlement organization in the DFW area.  In its 12 years of existence, Maruf has resettled 2000 families (7500 individuals) locally.  Ms. Waheed is dedicated to help her Maruf clients heal after their traumatic experiences of war and displacement. MARUF has established a four-month program that provides financial support, housing, medical assistance, education, and employment.  The program’s goal is to help clients heal by establishing a sense of stability, security, and independence through learning skills for their self-empowerment. Ms. Waheed leads a team of volunteers who share her passion and dedication to advocate for social justice by “putting their faith into action” and serving those in need.
