Already from the beginning of the year 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 topic of our next meeting:

5.01 THE JOY OF COLLECTING

The first workshop in the new year is meant to be a visit at the permanent exhibition of WCM – Jerzy Ludwiński Archive. In this archive, dedicated to the art critic that was active in 60’s and 70’s in Wrocław, is assembled considerable collection of different objects and documents connected with Ludwinski’s output and with the art world of that time. During the workshop we will talk about our own collections. We will also wonder why people gather, order and subsequently admire different items and show them to others with pleasure.
In the practical part of the workshop we will create our own artistic archives, using specially designed drawers, and then we will invent some stories to them.

12.01 CIRCUS IS FUNNY?

During this workshop we will visit Eva Kotakova’s exhibition for the last time. In her work, the artist depicts people, animals and unusual hybrid creatures. Often, they are subject to a kind of a circus training through which they acquire some new skills. In the course of our meeting we will have a look at the circus and circus artists, and then we will change the workshop space into the arena for acrobats.

19.01 WOVEN ART – TISSUE OF ART

We are perfectly aware that works of art do not mean only paintings and sculptures. During this workshop we are going to explore artistic fabrics. Opportunity for this will be provided by Yinka Shonibare exhibition, inspired by fantastic colours, unusual weaves and an exceptional texture of fabrics. During the second part of the meeting we will create our own artistic patchworks.

26.01 GLOBAL AFRICA

Yinka Shonibare is an artist who materialises ideas of post-colonial art in his works. During this workshop we will visit his exhibition in MWW. We will also have a look at other examples of contemporary African art, which derives from tradition and enriches it with contemporary elements. The outcome is an unusual mixture of tribal and global village. The practical part of the workshop will be dedicated to creating our own works inspired by African culture.
