Workshop themes change regularly according to the exhibitions currently on view.
Abstraction in Action: Hurtubise
March 15 to May 17, 2013
The dynamic interactions between shape, line, gesture and colour seen in Peinture no 43, 1962, by Jacques Hurtubise, on display in the exhibition A Matter of Abstraction, will prompt participants to paint a highly expressive image of their own.
May 24 to June 21, 2013
Michel de Broin’s sculptures made up of multiple, identical tables will provide the inspiration for our three-dimensional assemblages.
Summer Combo: Up Is Down/Down Is Up
Tuesday to Friday, June 25 to August 15, 2013
10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m
Inspired by Michel de Broin’s impressive sculpture Révolutions,* 2003, and the amazing film Cent Pas, 2010, we will create dizzying, threedimensional assemblages out of paper, made up of multiple sets of spiral staircases forming volutes with neither beginning nor end. This program, including workshop and tour of the exhibition Michel de Broin, is intended for day camps and daycares (ages 5 and up).
Block A: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Block B: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
