AGES 8 – 12
In this workshop we will use word play, story-telling, prop making and hat wearing to make fun, interesting art- works and performances. We will use art to ask questions like; “why do we like the things and stuff that we like? What makes our choices different? What stuff do we like to hold onto and keep good care of? And what stuff do we not care about?” We will work together to have fun, using materials, our own voices and movements to make short performances, taking lots of photographs. We then will choose the photos we think are the most interesting to keep as a memento of the fun and interesting ideas that came out of the workshop.
