Join this engaging and informative Art Talks workshop designed by educator EY Lucy Jung. Art Talks is a child-led series that takes place across exhibitions and encourages observation, discussion, collaboration and hands-on making to foster creative learning.
In this edition, children are invited to select artworks from the current exhibition Some Seasons: Fereydoun and the Laal Collection 1959-2019, and with a series of helpful prompts, discuss the meaning behind the artworks and their process. Children also gain a deep dive into Fereydoun Ave’s collection, learning the value of collecting even as a hobby, whether it’s objects, books, found materials or artworks. In response to the guided tour, children translate their thoughts into artworks.
Art Talks actively engages children in critical thinking and enhances their communication skills. Through shared learning experiences, children build connections within their community by collaborating to uncover unique perspectives.
This workshop is free to attend and is suitable for ages 6-12. Early registration is advised as spaces are limited.
No prior art experience is required. All materials and equipment are provided.
