Education, Children, Families
workshops take place every sunday at 1:30 PM on the 1st floor. Free admission. Obligatory registration via email before workshops
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.
12.11 I’M A CURATOR
Have you ever visited an exhibition and wondered why the works were arranged in a certain order? Or why certain artists had been invited to display their works? Who makes these decisions? An art curator! During the workshop each of us will turn into a real curator supervising their own photo exhibition! We will also pay a visit to the exhibition “Fotografia” Monthly 1953–1974 and think how the selection and arrangement of exhibits affects their reception.
Attention! In order to participate in the workshop you should bring ten photographs documenting your family’s life, or send them to us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 9 November. Choose photographs that you consider important – remember that not all inspiring portraits were taken in perfect light; some (or most) of them could be “broken”, out of focus or showing a stray dog in the frame.
26.11 SYMBOLS AND MESSAGES
How is it possible that a colon and capital D signifies that the writer is laughing? How do we know that a circle and several lines in a road sign denote a human? How many lines are needed to draw a chair? We are surrounded by symbols anywhere we go, but do they convey all that we which to put across? In the workshop we will create new symbols in order to tell a unique story. We will visit the exhibition Concrete Wrocław. Works from the Collection of the Zachęta Lower Silesian Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts in order to draw inspiration from works by local artists.
