ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES in Spanish and English

Constellations Non-stop from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. The concept of space is a challenge for some artists. Based on works by Calder and Picasso, participants face the challenge of recreating space and suspended shapes in two dimensions.

Sculpture and movement Non-stop from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.

Sculptures are able to move. Sometimes the movement is provoked and sometimes it is random. In this activity for all ages, we examine these ideas with sculptural works that lead to creative processes.

Constructing in space Non-stop from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. Calder and Picasso both used different materials to create three-dimensional forms. In this activity for all ages, the idea is to construct things by assembling shapes and defying gravity.
