These workshops for school groups are also offered to the general public on Sunday afternoons at either 1:30 or 2:30 p.m.
Workshop themes change regularly according to the exhibitions currently on view.
Ulysses’ ColoursFrom May 23, 2014 to June 19, 2014
Taking their inspiration from Ulysse Comtois’s 1965 work Sans titre, on view in A Matter of Abstraction, participants will be invited to paint abstract images made up of brightly coloured horizontal bands.
GongFrom March 4, 2014 to May 16, 2014
Create a resounding show of colour by joining in the abstract-painting activity inspired by Claude Tousignant’s 1965 Gong, on display in the exhibition A Matter of Abstraction. For this workshop, you’ll trade in your brush for a roller to produce a circular painting that vibrates with colour!
Tick Tock MAC ClockFrom February 28, 2014 to March 28, 2014
It’s well known that time is the greatest innovator. So seize the moment and come rediscover the technique of collage at the Musée workshops. Invent your own, original clock with hands and numbers pointing in every direction and featuring a whole succession of improvised characters and actions. This activity ties in with Christian Marclay’s video installation The Clock.
Exuberant GesturalityFrom January 24, 2014 to February 21, 2014
The exuberant pictorial gestures contrasting with geometric forms seen in Richard Mill’s painting on view in the exhibition A Matter of Abstraction will offer participants an opportunity to paint an expressive abstract image with a highly animated composition full of lines, shapes, colours, textures and, above all, super-energetic brushstrokes!
In the CloudsFrom December 6, 2013 to January 17, 2014
The atmospheric effects subtly suggested in Suzelle Levasseur’s 1995 painting titled No 380, presented in A Matter of Abstraction, will guide participants as they create a circular painting made up of contrasting and complementary forms with sometimes defined, sometimes hazy contours.
