CHRISTMAS WORKSHOPS 2016
This Christmas season the CGAC will be hosting two workshops for children aged between 4 and 9 on the suggestive exhibitions of the artists Eva Lootz and Berta Cáccamo.
For younger children, the dancer-performer Marina Oural has designed a movement workshop where the participants' bodies will dialogue, on the one hand with the enveloping and sensorial spaces of the exhibition Cut Through the Fog by Eva Lootz and, on the other, with Berta Cáccamo's enormous paintings from the exhibition Expansión ensayo.
Children aged 7 to 9 will work with the educator Candela Rajal in a creative experimentation workshop using everyday materials. The participants will begin by discovering the interest Eva Lootz and Berta Cáccamo have in materials, so that later, on their own, they can discover how elements such as water, sand, stone, wax, etc. behave, and what their properties and expressive possibilities are.
Dance workshop. The dance of the magic bean
28 and 29 December 2016
Directed by Marina Oural
Age: 4-6 years
Hours: 11 am to 1 pm
In this movement workshop children will experience in their own bodies the feelings given off by nature and art. They will feel as if they are water, wind, soil, sun... They will practice active listening skills, the contrast between presence and absence, heaviness and lightness, verticality and horizontality, touch and contact, exchanging roles, colours, words, and poetry. Our bodies will speak by creating a stage piece within the context of the works of Eva Lootz and Berta Cáccamo.
Creation workshop. Extra-pictorics
3 and 4 January 2017
Directed by Candela Rajal
Age: 7-9 years
Hours: 11am to 1 pm
On the occasion of the current exhibitions at the CGAC, in this workshop we will delve into the infinite possibilities offered by artistic creation through research and experimentation with different materials. Elements such as salt, sand, fabric, acetate, thread, felt, or paraffin will become our travel companions in a journey that passes through that which is most visual to that which is most subjective.
We will explore how matter transforms and behaves when we act on it in a game based on action-reaction and on questions and answers. Cutting, pasting, adding, removing, squeezing, folding, creasing, squashing, or beating will be some of the resources that we will use in order to create. We will put ourselves in the shoes of extra-pictorial researchers through manipulation, observation, and knowledge of different materials.
