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.

8.01.2017 MAP OF DREAMS
What do we dream about? Where do our dreams come from? Are we trying to fulfil them on an everyday basis? We will try to answer these questions during the first family workshop in the New Year. Together we will watch Binelde Hyrcan’s video titled Cambeck, in which four boys let their imagination run wild while travelling the world in a limousine made of sand and talking about their dreams. Are we similar to them? Or perhaps very different? In the practical part, we will use stamps to make our maps of dreams that will help us to not only remember about them, but also make them come true.

Do artists have secrets that they hide in their works? Do you have any secrets? Turn it into a visual puzzle! During the workshop we will be playing with meanings and making rebuses. Together we will visit an installation by VALIE EXPORT, who used light bulbs, water, a substitute of milk and spent engine oil to make a work that symbolises the vital forces. Inspired by her work, in the practical part we are going to make rebuses using different forms, backgrounds and meanings.

The Family Workshops are intergenerational meetings, and for this reason we are going to make artistic family trees on Grandmother’s and Grandfather’s Day. We will together think about our origins: Who are we? Do we know our great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents? Who do we take after? On this special day, we would like to invite grandmothers and grandfathers with their children as well as parents. In the practical part, we will build a spatial family tree with pictures of our ancestors and ourselves.

During this Sunday’s family workshop we are going to make multimedia pictures that could be used as pretexts for expressing our thoughts and feelings. That tool that will fire up our imagination is the interactive application called “Dreamagining”.
“Dreamagining” is an original educational application that fosters the development of visual thinking by introducing the users into the world of primary colours and basic composition. In this interactive application, multi-layered elements are arranged in groups of nine colours, which can be placed against different backgrounds of the same colours. The play makes it possible to build individual picture stories irrespective of the users’ manual skills. By juxtaposing motifs that could not come together is a three-dimensional space, we will discover surprising links between them. The unusual characters of the stories can move freely between the colourful settings, change their size and location, or become semi-visible.
