We invite children from 4 to 11 years old and their parents to visit us on three Sundays of May (6, 13, 27.05) at 1.30 PM.
The workshops last 90 min and consist of two parts. At the beginning we all visit an exhibition that is currently showing at MWW and discuss the featured works. After that we move on to the manual part, which is intended to creatively use the aroused imagination and sensitivity.
Programme of Sunday Family Workshops
– May 2018:

A workshop revolving around the interactive exhibition Spirits of the Forest in the Self-service Museum. Are contemporary artists of the younger generation still interested in landscapes? Do they derive inspiration from nature to capture the view of a forest? Of course! What is more, they make use of almost all the available techniques. Nature is a topical subject for young artists. However, forest in art has many faces, and some of them look nothing like the familiar groves and thickets. During the presentation we will see works by Kinga Nowak, Krzysztof Maniak and Agata Bogudzka, and in the practical part we will reinterpret mysterious and ambiguous forests in our own way.
The workshop will be led by Agata Iżykowska.
The workshop will focus on works by Irena Kalicka, featured at the Ratcatcher exhibition. Masks of cows, boars, pigs and sheep worn on people’s faces trigger associations with mythical half-humans half-beasts. During the Sunday workshop we will find out what staged photography is, and later we will pay a visit to the exhibition to see Kalicka’s works. The artist often surprises the viewer; her photographs are inspired by popular culture, film and literature. In the practical part we will make fanciful dresses and masks, which will enable us to personify creatures from fables, legends or historical chronicles. In the end we are going to preserve the unusual outfits by photographing them.
The workshop will be led by Anna Nowak.
Did Pablo Picasso ever visit Wrocław? Of course he did! What is more, he drew the Dove of Peace here. This Sunday Family Workshop will focus on symbols. Which signs are associated with peace and happiness, and which – with fear? Why do some colours arise anxiety, while others calm us down? During the practical part we will talk about Jurry Zieliński’s 1969 work Dove of Anxiety. We will go back in art history and compare it with Picasso’s Dove of Peace, which the artist made during the World Congress of Intellectuals for Peace held in Wrocław in 1948. We will discuss the historical connotations of both works, also in the context of the 100th anniversary of regaining independence by Poland and the 70th anniversary of the Congress. During the practical part we will use different techniques to make our own interpretations of peace symbols.
The workshop will be led by Anna Nowak.
