L’Art Pur Foundation reflects Princess Adwa Yazid bin Abdallah Al Saud‘s way of understanding the Culture and Heritage of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and how this legacy nowadays interacts with the blossoming local art expressions. Being artist herself and being part of Saudi Art community sponsoring and organizing art exhibitions, She founded L’Art Pur Gallery in 1999, in order to nurture this creative environment and help young Saudi talented artists to develop their creativity as well as to support and showcase exhibitions of high standard for famous Saudi artists and other famous artists from outside the Kingdom. In 2007, She founded Arts & Skills Institute, the first art school in Saudi Arabia to deliver 2 Australian curriculums : 2 years Diploma in visual Arts and 2 years Diploma in fashion design.
