Art In Action

Saturday, May 28, 2016 - 11:00am to 1:30pm

The workshop will function as a liberal space for the kids to explore creative possibilities under their own perception, using their bodies, the space and other objective materials to make installations, paintings, artistic actions, etc. In this way the children will stimulate their capability to interact in a creative way with their surroundings. The exercises practice techniques inspired by theater, dance and visual arts. They will create their own situations and interpretations as they play, having possibly, for the first time, a formal encounter with conceptual and action art.
