The Environment and Contemporary Artists

For children ages 6-10


The Environment and Contemporary Artists
Rashid Jonhson
Sunday 17/10, 11:30-13:30

Using materials from our kitchen cupboard, we will create a starry sky…
Drawing inspiration from artist Rashid Johnson and the photograms of early photographers, we will create our own monochromatic works using paint, paper, oats, lentils, and many other materials hidden in our kitchen cupboard.

Rashid Johnson is inspired by the works of early photographers (e.g. Equivalents by Alfred Stieglitz) and by his diet, which is linked to his country’s tradition and is an important element of his identity. He creates works that look as much like photograms as lithographs.
In this workshop, we will present his work and what inspires him. Then, using the technique of the photogram, we will create artwork using legumes and fruits on watercolor paper. 

The Environment and Contemporary Artists
Georgia O’Keeffe
Sunday 31/10, 11:30-13:30

Everything is a matter of framing and perspective. From a distance you see the huge flower you just created, but what happens when the perspective shifts? 
A new story begins!
Let’s paint it like Georgia O’Keeffe!

We will look at O’Keeffe’s works and how she shifted from depicting nature to abstraction. Everything is a matter of framing and perspective.
We will make large flowers. Using a frame, each child will isolate part of their flower and paint it. Before we come up with our final frame, each child will try to use their imagination to see what the fragmented images might be hiding. 

P.S.: Children should wear comfortable, casual clothes and be prepared to get messy!
The workshop is held without parental accompaniment, in Greek, but can also be attended by English-speaking children.
