to the exhibition FANTASTIC WOMEN

FANTASTICALLY SURREAL GRADES 5 UPWARDS

Image segments from copies of various exhibits are reassembled to create a new pictorial message and are completed with elements compiled by the pupils themselves in order to generate fantastical beings or plants, using mixed media collage techniques.

 COLLAGE PRINCIPLE: INNER LIVES GRADES 6 UPWARDS

Inspired by the works of Jane Graverol we fill various silhouettes with patterns that either heighten the figures’ expression or contradict it, using paper collage on cardboard

RANDOMNESS PRINCIPLE: LINE STRUCTURES IN BLACK AND WHITE GRADES 8 UPWARDS

A line crisscrossing the paper is made without lifting the pen. This gives rise to randomly generated areas, which in a second step are turned into phantasy beings or ornamental structures through the addition of detailed structures, using a black fineliner pen on white cardboard

THROWING PAINT AROUND GRADES 7 UPWARDS

Richard Jackson’s works are the result of experiments with color and tell ironic-grotesque stories. In the workshop we squirt paint and make it run, as well as exploring further methods of applying color

AUTOMATIC PAINTING GRADES 8 UPWARDS

 We reconstruct the process with which Richard Jackson’s works were made in the exhibition rooms. In the subsequent workshop we create our own painting machines with the aid of objects moving at different speeds that leave distinctive traces of color
