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 schedule of activities:

7.4 A JOURNEY THROUGT ART

The sculptures from the Paweł Althamer’s exhibiton provoke the viewer to find a context for them. They seem to be white cards on which we can write down different stories. We can think who the models are or make up  totaly new identities for them. We can also try to find some associations with sculpture from different ages. During the workshop we will attempt to discover antique calmness, baroque anxiety, legends from the Middle Ages and surrealistic cosmos in those sculptures.

14.4 WHO IS AN ARTIST?

The last workshop dedicated to the exhibition “Polyethylene. In the darkness” is a good occasion to look closer at these and other works of Paweł Althamer. His conception of engaged art as a kind of joint action, is worth knowing. The artist invites friends, neighbours and kids from local nurseries to participate in his projects. He often experiments with technique and material and has made sculptures using unusual materials such as grass, straw, animal skin and intestines. During the workshop we will have a look at his most interesting projects and we will consider who exactly a contemporary artist is.

21.4 PAINTINGS UNDER THE MAGNIFYING GLASS

Among the works exhibited within the eighth edition of “Aviaries” project we can find numerous paintings. Some of them present various objects and tell their stories, whereas others affect us only with their colours and shapes. They can have coarsely grained, heavy texture or flat, smooth surface. Some of them present the world in dark, subdued tones, whilst others in light, joyful clours. Some of them are vivid, others are subtly pastel. During the workshop we will have a look at these paintings carefully and we will check what they are made of. We will think about how their form influences emotions they evoke in us.

28.4 ONLY ART WON’T DECEIVE YOU

During the workshop we will visit Sonia Rolak’s exhibition. In her works the artist refers to the idea of revolution and street demonstrations. Therefore, we will talk about the manner in which art enters public space and engages itself in social issues. We will look at the banners that are presented in exhibition and we will think over slogans we would like to put on them. There could be plenty of ideas!
