The Act of Painting – workshop for the family, Kjarvalsstaðir, Sunday, 14 October, 3 p.m.

Next Sunday at Kjarvalsstaðir the artist and museum educator, Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir will lead a workshop for kids between 6-10 year old and their families.

The workshop is set in conjunction with the exhibition The Lyric Vision – Abstract-Expressionism in Icelandic Art, 1957-1970 and plays with the idea of abstract.
The exhibition focuses on Icelandic abstract expressionism that developed in Iceland following the years after the World War II. The subject of the workshop is „the act of painting“. Instead of representing recognizable things, abstract expressionist artists wanted to express their emotions through line, shape, and colour directly on the canvas.

Participatns are invited to try their hands at enjoyable projects related to abstract paintings and see various examples of different abstract paintings. The event will take place in Icelandic.
