How does a statue feel?
Just like people, statues can sometimes look angry, happy or sad. But how can you see exactly what a statue feels like? The children go into the museum to carry out research. In this expedition they learn what the difference is between a portrait and a self-portrait. They then discover the different materials used in making the (self-) portraits. They also look at the emotions you can see in a statue, and they experience for themselves how they can show these emotions. During the workshop the pupils make a group portrait in which is displayed a piece of each child’s identity.
