A workshop for all. Inspired by the art at Museum Brandhorst, we draw collaborative works.
"If I was asked [...] to just draw a picture, I wouldn't know what to do. Everything I do is a response to something else."
Spontaneously, we respond to an artwork of our choice. Afterwards, we pass our sketch around and receive one from another person. On this drawing we add something, responding to what was created before. We can try our hand at the same style, draw something appropriate to the content, continue a form, or simply repeat the motif. We can also refine the sketch, or comment on it. In this way we creatively discover different ideas for a work of art. We let ourselves be surprised and inspired. In the process, we try out new drawing styles, engage with each other, and learn from and with each other.
"Art should be something that liberates the soul, stimulates the imagination and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it."
The workshop will be led by graphic designer and illustrator Carla Nagel.
THE KIDS FACTORY
The Kids’ Factory is a program for children aged between 6 and 12, inviting them to become creative themselves, as the mood takes them. It is possible to join at any time. Different techniques and themes inspire varied artistic pursuits: Whether drawing, painting, working with different printing techniques, dancing; whether analog, digital or hybrid—we will whisk you away to the world of colors and shapes, and appeal to your imagination and creative spirit.
You can find many other offers for children and families in the museum as well as playful creative projects for at home in our digital creative lab of the Factory.
