Rainbow street - workshop for children I.

CGP, Municipal library, 2nd floor, from 1 to 6 pm

„RAINBOW STREET“ - Workshops for children and schools with a guided tour of the exhibition, CREATIVE DIALOGUES WITH ART

Art workshops located on the spot, in exhibition space or in art studio, under the guidance of lecturer Lucie Haškovcová, are targeted on children but take in members of all other age groups, ready to get involved in a stimulating programme using special auxiliary materials, prepared and realized by the Gallery´s Education Department. Under the programme, interactive viewings of exhibitions are followed by creative response, consisting in the visitors´ engagement in art work. Participants can get acquainted with both traditional and unorthodox techniques in the fields of drawing, painting, experimental photography, as well as threedimensional, intermedial, action and concept art. Each of these events will be introduced by basic information about street art and graffiti, outlining their roots, subsequent development and present-day scene in the Czech Republic and the rest of the world, followed by a survey of catalogues, books and magazines covering this field. The individual artists will be introduced both through their works conceived and executed for the present show, and through documentation of their previous output. Above all, though, a wide variety of interactive educational approaches will be employed, aimed at establishing direct creative communication and dialogue with the artists´ works.  Besides events targeting schools, the project will comprise specialized weekend workshops for all age groups.

Organized by the lecturer of the City Gallery Prague, Lucie Haškovcová.
