This new cycle of cultural mediation activities, developed in collaboration with Sofia Kouloukouri*, places artists and their approaches at its heart.
For each exhibition of the Center, children are invited to meet different artists to discover with them the works exhibited and share their practices during a workshop.
On the occasion of the exhibition Lemaniana
A painting workshop with Sarah Watson
Wednesday June 23, 2021
The American painter and architect Sarah Watson is inspired by the natural landscape to create geometric paintings. For this workshop, she invites children to look closely at photos of natural landscapes – the sea, the forest or other – to discover geometric elements such as circles, triangles or zigzags.
Using rulers, squares, compasses and other tools, children will draw these geometric landscapes on paper and color them with markers and pencils. They will also be able to cut out and glue these shapes. The goal of the workshop is to begin to recognize geometric elements in the world around us and to allow ourselves to interpret them freely!
So kids, bring your landscape photos from your weekend hikes or vacations! But don’t worry, we can also provide you with images here at the Center.
