Parents and kids are invited to a mini tour and workshop session – set your creativity free together, assisted by an art educator!
We start with a guided tour of one of the current exhibitions at the museum, and then use the art we have seen as our inspiration for painting, drawing or sculpting in the Workshop.
Family Sundays, autumn of 2013:
29 September - Suprematist Sunday
Suprematism is a tricky word! It means creating art by placing different geometric forms next to each other. There are several pieces constructed in this way in the exhibition Russian Avant-Garde. The artist Kazimir Malevich was the first Suprematist artist and it will soon be 100 years since that. We will take a look at what they look like, and then begin to explore among lines, edges, angles, squares, circles and triangles. What would your own Suprematist artwork look like? Which forms and colours would you use? Our workshop offers the chance to create your own artwork.
27 October - Paint Music!
This will not be a regular Sunday at the museum; it will be the Sunday we try to paint music. How? Well, we begin by looking at someone who already tried –the artist Wassily Kandinsky. He lived 100 years ago and whenever he listened to music, he could see colours in front of him. Can you actually see that his paintings represent music? We will investigate the subject and will of course try to paint music in the Workshop. What does music look like in your head when you listen to it? Do all people see the same or is it different images?
24 November - Sculpture Sunday
The artist Aleksandr Rodtjenko did everything from photography to painting, graphic to furniture design, and sculpture. Several of his wood sculptures are displayed in the exhibition Russian Avant-Garde. They look a little like furniture as well as symbols. Or maybe something else? We will take a look at them together on a short guide of the exhibition. Some of them stand on the floor, but not all of them! How do you create a sculpture? There is only one way to find out –to try it for yourself.
29 December - Collage Sunday
On the last Family Sunday of the year, we will equip ourselves with different tools. Like our eyes –we observe, discover, reflect and analyze. And scissors, paper, images and glue – we cut up things and put them up together again, but in a totally different way. And then our voices, so that we can talk about what we have created, and what we see when we look at art in the exhibition Russian Avant-Garde.
The groups starts at 11.15 am, 13.30 pm and 3 pm.
