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.

03.08 Journey to Asia

This workshop will be devoted to the Asian issue of the Aspen magazine, which contained copies of Chinese, Japanese and Indian graphics, paintings and miniatures, photographs of Asian temples and examples of beautiful calligraphy. In the practical part of the workshop, we will also have a go at painting oriental characters.

10.08 Colourful tastes

We are going to revisit Krzysztof Mężyk’s exhibition during the workshop. The artist often uses surprising combinations of colours in his paintings. We will experience both harmony and dissonance by means of different senses. We will taste harmonizing and contrasting flavours, listen to a variety of sounds, and make a painting using contrasting colours.

17.08 Round shapes of concepts

The meeting will be devoted to Stanisław Dróżdż’s exhibition. The artist created his own formula of a poem-image. He used the term concept-shapes to describe the works that he wrote/drew. In order to better understand this mysterious term, we will look at the works by Dróżdż that are presented at MWW, and later we will make our own concept-shapes on balloons filled with helium.

24.08 Figures of shadow

During the workshop we will pay a visit to Piotr Blajerski’s exhibition. In his works, he examines the limits of cognition of the world. He is particularly interested in fleeting phenomena, ones that lack shape and fill the space between that which exists and that which does not. The shape of air, light dancing on the floor, snow falling in vacuum – these are some of the subjects that intrigue Blajerski. In the practical part of the workshop, we will focus on shadows, and we will use them to give form to internal fears.

31.08 Avant-garde sounds of Aspen
 
During the workshop we will say goodbye to the exhibition of the Aspen magazine. This unusual magazine in a box engaged not only sight, but also other senses of the recipients. Apart from articles, images and photographs, each issue contained recordings of music. This time, we will focus on listening to the exhibition rather than watching it. In the practical part, we will use some surprising instruments to create our own recordings, and then we will give a concert!
