Experiment like an Artist

Experiment like an Artist

Ages 9 -12

Just as a painter makes sketches on paper, sculptors also sometimes make preliminary studies, but in plaster. Our Gipsoteca showcases a variety of these preliminary plasterworks made by Dutch sculptors, highlighting the artistic process. During this Penning, or Medals, workshop, the children discover the Gipsoteca and get to work in plaster themselves. They make a commemorative medal by making a clay mold into which they will then pour the plaster. The children learn how to think in terms of concave and convex, positive and negative space. As the medals are drying, the children are given a guided tour through the Gipsoteca, with attention being paid to the endless numbers of preliminary studies that are to be seen there.

Duration: 120 minutes
Cost: €7.50 per pupil, including admission charge, supervisors free (max. 1 supervisor per 10 children)
