The fall school holidays are the perfect time to visit EMMA, whether alone or with friends or family. A varied line-up of events is in store for every day of the week. Choose your favourite day or come every day. Remember that children should always attend Art Break with an adult. Art Break is organized in collaboration with art education students of Aalto University. Workshops and materials are included in the museum admission.
Tuesday 15 October: Finding the red line
Picture often starts from a line, but what can we find behind a line? How do lines reflect movement or emotions? We start by searching lines in artworks and ourselves by drawing a collective transparent art piece and continuing personal studies of a line. Come and join us into a journey of searching lines!
Wednesday 16 October: Mysterious Light
Light is everywhere around us but can we name different forms how light appears? Can light be used to create artworks? In this workshop we will explore the secrets of light by observing artworks that could not exist without the presence of light and we get to transform an ordinary object into a light source. Let’s explore together the play between light and shadow! FULLY BOOKED!
Thursday 17 October: Toys on Thrones
What does a picture tell? We will examine the visual messages of fandom and idolizing, by using participants’ own favourite toys! Please bring along your favorite toy to be used as a model for a collage portrait. Come and wonder, how an idol image is created!
Friday 18 October: Free movement!
What kind of art makes you move? On the last day of EMMA’s art holiday, we are exploring movement. Is it something that happens between different materials or something that happens inside us? How do our feelings influence our movement and what kind of feelings can we raise with our movement? Join our fun disco workshop and explore the various opportunities of the movement with our Slime friends!
We will draw ourselves by stepping back, measuring and observing our body in relation to the space around us. The workshop is hosted by art educator Tero Hytönen.
Feel the Art
Observe how your body responds by taking part in a gentle stretching class surrounded by works of art from the Sky of Time exhibition. The workshop is hosted by dance and mindfulness teacher Rani Saarinen.
