Inspired by the art in Museum Brandhorst, we draw collaborative works.
“If you asked me to just do a painting, spontaneously, from my imagination, I would have no idea what to do. Everything for me is in response to something else.”
We will respond spontaneously to an artwork of our choice. Afterwards we will swap our sketch with someone else. We then add something to their drawing, responding to what was drawn before. We can try our hand at the same style, draw something appropriate to the content, continue a shape, or simply repeat the motif. We can also refine the sketch or comment on it. In a creative way, we discover different ideas for an artwork. We let ourselves be surprised and inspired. In the process, we try out new drawing styles, engage with each other, learn from and with each other.
“Art should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination, and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it.”
The workshop will be run by graphic designer and illustrator Carla Nagel. She has worked for many years for museums and book publishers, among others, as well as in the field of science education. For Museum Brandhorst she has designed several art expeditions for children and the ActioncARTs. In addition, she realizes free artistic projects.
