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.

5.03.2017 SCULPTING PERSONALITY
 
Can we show our emotions, personality or character through the body, without using any words? During the workshop we will ponder the similarities between theatre and sculpture. We will try to connect them in order to see whether this experiment will broaden our outlook on the world. Following Tony Cragg’s idea emphasising the importance of senses situated inside the body and communicating with the world, in the practical part we will set out on a sensual tour of the museum. By triggering our bodies and sharpening the senses, we will try to imitate the artist’s sculptures and discover the emotions and meanings hidden in them. The participants are kindly asked to wear comfortable, loose clothes, e.g. sports clothes.
 
12.03.2017 CANONS OF BEAUTY
 
Who is pretty and who is ugly? How often do we judge a book by its cover? This workshop will be devoted to a discussion about the canons of beauty. We will think about the reasons why some people like certain things while others find them disgusting. We will search for canons of beauty while visiting the “Labor Relations” exhibition. In the practical part, we will use cosmetics and paints to redo photographs in order to endow them with new meanings.
 
19.03.2017 SEND ME ART
 
When did you last send a real letter to somebody? Perhaps you have never done it? During this Sunday’s meeting, we will explore Jerzy Ludwiński Archive and focus on mail art. In communist Poland, it was difficult to exchange thoughts about art with other European countries and the world, so artists started to send their works by post. We will do the same during the workshop. After making artworks, we will put them in an envelope, stamp them and send. Perhaps the letters will be answered… Please bring the address of a person to whom you would like to send the letter.

26.03.2017 MULTIPLICATION
 
Do you know how many people live in the world? Is there somebody who looks just like you? Or perhaps you resemble somebody else? During the workshop we will think if we are made from “fragments” of other people. Do I take after my mom or dad, or perhaps I resemble my brother? Together we will pay a visit to the photo exhibition “Globalization and individuality”, which features collages made from small, multiplied elements. In the practical part, we will create collages/portraits consisting of small images and see whether minute details put next to each other form a greater whole.

Information about future workshops to be released soon.
