All parents with their children are welcome to join us each Sunday at 1:30 PM. All workshops take one hour and consist of two parts. First, we visit the up-to-date exhibition together and we talk about the works presented there. During the second part of the workshop we take up manual activities that enable everybody to creatively use their awaken sensitivity and imagination.


The first workshop in the New Year will be an opportunity to think about what exists, what doesn’t
exist, what we know, see, feel and what we believe in. These questions have occupied creative minds
for centuries. Artists have expressed their doubts and uncertainties in many different ways. We are
going to look at pieces capturing the fleeting and the impossible, and later we will make invisible
drawings ourselves.

10.01.2016 – THE AMAZING HOPI

During the meeting we will revisit the Self-service Museum and listen to the mysterious legends of
the Hopi tribe “under the ground”. We will also look at artworks, pottery, clothes, ornaments and
hairstyles made by them. The Hopi tribe tries to live in harmony with nature. Deriving inspiration
from their world, in the practical part we will make ornate geometric figurines.


During this meeting, we will visit Pola Dwurnik’s drawing exhibition. The artist documents her life by
making sketches and short comics. During the workshop we will focus on the drawing technique and
examine the huge variety of subjects raised by artists in their private sketchbooks. In the second part
of the meeting, we will make our drawings-stories.


During the meeting we will pay a visit to Pola Dwurnik’s exhibition. Among the works it features is
a cycle depicting the artist wearing regal robes, which refers to portraits of Elizabeth I. Pola Dwurnik rules a realm of art that she has created. In the practical part of the workshop we will also put on king’s and queen’s robes and make royal self-portraits.


During the workshop we will visit the exhibition “Following Jerzy Grotowski in Jan Krzysztof Fiołek’s Photographs”. In one of the photos, a man is following two cows. We will also follow animals in art by looking at them as the central characters in paintings by old masters and in very contemporary pieces. In the practical part, we will create hybrid mammals.
