 FAMILY WORKSHOPS. A-B-CONTEMPORARY.

18 June - 18 December 2016

FAMILY WORKSHOPS. A-B-CONTEMPORARY.

Artist Rebeca Mariño will be offering a series of workshops on artistic experimentation for families with children between the ages of 4 and 9. An opportunity for families to discover, create and have fun in the world of modern art.The goal of the first series of workshops is to seek out colour above and beyond painting itself.

Contemporary colour jumps out of the framed canvas to fill every corner of our lives. It reaches out to find new situations to be seen between light and everyday life, disassociating itself with painting per se, to follow the plasticity of colour in other objects and materials which are converted into abstract brushstrokes.

The sessions, dedicated to different artists, will be part theory, in which we will delve deep into their artistic works to explore the diversity of contemporary expression. Later, there will be a part consisting of games and creativity where we will dare − without venturing a single brushstroke − to investigate how colour fills works of art by examining material and objects that populate our daily life.



HOURS: Saturday and Sunday from 11 to 13 p-m

 
TAKING OFF WITH BRUSHSTROKES. FRANK STELLA
18 and 19 June
Saturday the 18th for families with children aged 4-6
Sunday the 19th for families with children aged 7-9
Vacancies: 10 kids plus 2 family members in each workshop
In the first session we will learn about the American artist, Frank Stella, who will take us along his parallels to a world in which colour stands out boldly from the walls.In the practical part of the workshop, we’re going to use different coloured adhesive tape and other material to make irregular canvases.


SPINNING COLOURS. ROSEMARIE TROCKEL
17 and 18 September
Saturday the 17th for families with children aged 4-6
Sunday the 18th for families with children aged 7-9
Vacancies: 10 kids plus 2 family members in each workshop
Rosemarie Trockel’s second name is wool. Her feminist language weaves notions of her identity as a woman. We will embroider through the fabrics and spin threads by exploring these materials stroke by stroke. Sewing, winding, tracing... these are some of the patterns we’ll use following the artistic work of Rosemarie during the practical part of the workshop, creating shapes and new pieces using thread as a guide.


NATURAL. NILS UDO
15 and 16 October
Saturday the 15th for families with children aged 4-6
Sunday the 16th for families with children aged 7-9
Vacancies: 10 kids plus 2 family members in each workshop
Nils Udo observes nature and he transforms it into an ephemeral canvas. Well known for his Land Art works, he explores different fields to carry out his work: photography, drawing, painting, sculpture… and he borrows his basic material for creation from nature.
In this workshop we will take part in the arrival of autumn by playing with the elements and colours that the landscape offers us to shape our works.

OBJECT POINT. JESSICA STOCKHOLDER
19 and 20 November
Saturday the 19th for families with children aged 4-6
Sunday the 20th for families with children aged 7-9
Vacancies: 10 kids plus 2 family members in each workshop
The way in which Jessica Stockholder interprets objects is a hallmark of creation with associations that are a mixture of identifiable things and the abstract. By putting together objects of different types and origins, she succeeds in creating a kind of order in what appears to be chaotic and unconnected.
Forgotten objects can have a second life. We’ll rummage through our pieces of junk to turn them into abstract creations by organizing and tracing their colours.

RE-CREATING. VIK MUNIZ
17 and 18 December
Saturday the 17th for families with children aged 4-6
Sunday the 18th for families with children aged 7-9
Vacancies: 10 kids plus 2 family members in each workshop
Reutilize, reuse, recycle, are words that have come into our lives and they’re here to stay. Vik Muniz tends to appropriate himself of other images and then he reinterprets them with a variety of materials – from edible products to small toys. In this workshop we’ll start out with a collage and use all kinds of materials to construct a new image.
