Doodling is a return to graphic expression, freed from representation. It is often associated with drawings by small children. One tends to understand this gesture as meaningless.


Together we will trace the meaning of this gesture in the works of Cy Twombly. It might be the beginning of a thought, a form or writing. It translates a movement, but also a space. It is the beginning of something that is in development.


Doodling is an activity detached from technical conventions. It stands for the pure, intuitive expression of thoughts and feelings. No matter how old you are, the ability to doodle might be important.


Through various artistic activities in this workshop, we will find out how we can focus on free self-expression.


The workshop will be run by artist Charlotte Giacobbi. She received her diploma from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Previously, her art studies took her to the Sorbonne University in Paris, the Bourges School of Art, and the Braunschweig University of Fine Arts. For Charlotte Giacobbi, art is a place of unlimited possibilities and is therefore very important to her. She would like to pass on these creative possibilities to others.





Every Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., the intergenerational drop-in format "Open Factory" provides a great framework to allow you to get creative with the whole family or with friends, just as the mood takes you. Different techniques and topics inspire varied artistic pursuits and strolls through the exhibitions. 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 will find more information about our artists and artworks, creative projects for your home and many other workshops and tours for your next visit in our digital creative laboratory the Factory.
