The history of contemporary art. Workshops for the deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing children of deaf parents

12 March – 23 April 2017
Sundays, 15:30–17:00

DESCRIPTION

A series of workshops introducing listeners to the history of contemporary art is designed for family visitors and accessible to the deaf, hard of hearing and hearing children of deaf parents.

Kids and their parents will get acquainted with works by ten important artists and learn about new movements in the art of the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century.

Each class consists of a theoretical and a practical part. An interactive lecture introduces listeners to the life, works and ideas of an artist, while a practical part helps get a better understanding of certain movements and techniques through working with the color wheel, studying composition, and searching for new ways of artistic expression.
