workshop for youngsters

ABC-HOUSE WEDNESDAY WORKSHOP FOR YOUNGSTERS

This workshop is aimed at young people aged 12 to 15 who are interested in art, culture, crafts and working with their hands. A whole afternoon of experimenting, learning new techniques, immersing yourself and getting an appetite for much more. To discover and develop your own interests and talents. Experienced ABC guides accompany the youngsters in their artistic exploration. We work in thematic clusters of five Wednesdays. Each series ends with a free workshop to continue working on a project or to go on an outing (to a museum, a show…). You register for each thematic series of 5 or for the whole year (3 series, 15 workshops).

Theme 1. Painting: With oil paint, pigment and brush
Using your phone to quickly snap a picture is simple and can be quite handy for capturing a moment. But have you ever taken the time to let a picture emerge with oil paint? The slow drying process of this paint gives you the opportunity to put shapes on a canvas in proportion, observe every detail and add the right touch of color. This can be realistic, abstract or totally wild, new and different. In this series we dive into the world of painting, experimenting with homemade ecological paints, binders and brushes. We will try to extract pigment, make ink and maybe even master some painting technique. We will study examples from art history and – on an excursion – be inspired by the work of contemporary masters.
Five experimental Wednesday afternoons, for anyone who wants to paint.
