Visual Arts Workshop: Strange is “cool” - Εικόνα

Creativity, imagination and ingenuity are our main tools for this workshop, in which we will be exploring the fascinating world of the Peculiar. Our guide to this exploration will be artist Louise Bourgeois.

The workshop attempts to familiarize us with what is strange, different, peculiar. Through various activities, we will try to better understand a different way of expression. In this context, we will be called upon to give strange forms to everyday familiar objects; conjure up a strange personal space for us; invent stranger plants and animals. We will also be called upon to give ourselves a strange form. Through visual arts workshops and play, we will discover the enormous power of creativity.

The work of Bourgeois will also show us that creativity can be used as a tool for expressing ourselves and managing our emotions. Lastly, through group activities, we will come into contact with different views and approaches, which we will try to respect and understand.

The workshop’s structure is based on corresponding themes of the work of Louise Bourgeois.
