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.
