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 Workshops, 2014:
29 June: Warm and cool
During the summer, Moderna Museet Malmö has an exhibition with the artist Tora Vega Holmström. She lived and worked about one hundred years ago and was very interested in colour and colour theory. Do you know that you can create dark shadows without using black paint? And that you can make light parts without white paint? Did you know that there are warm and cool colours? On this Family Workshop we take a look at how Tora Vega Holmström worked and then we test on our own in the Workshop.
Artist Pablo Picasso had several alter-egos during his lifetime. One was a harlequin, other a Minotaur. What are those and what is an alter-ego? We're finding out at the Family Workshop July 27. In the Workshop, everyone gets to create their own alter-ego or fantasy figure.
We're looking for different kinds of feelings in the art of Swedish painter Tora Vega Holmström. Then we go to the Workshop to try and create paintings portraying feelings.
Imagination and make believe islands
With a little help from your imagination it is possible to be at two places, or more, at the same time. In The Moderna Exhibition - Society Acts there are many works of art that sets your imagination on fire. Some of them are about places. We start with a short guided tour and based on what we see we create our own make believe islands and fantasy places.
Silver and gold
There are a lot of exciting works of art at Moderna Museet Malmö, this Sunday we will take a closer look at two of them. One looks like gold on fire! The other one you have to look at different places in the museum to find. It consists of 81 different silver figures. Can you find them all? In the workshop we create with silver and gold coloured materials together.
The Family Workshop in December is a part of our Christmas Holiday programme.
