A workshop for children to teach them how to design landscapes with which they will create their own kites. Based on experimental observation exercises, we will explore elements such as light, color, words and geometry, to create free compositions. This way the participants will have a landscape to carry, remember and play.
We will make our creations fly!
** ** We will meet at 12:50 pm at Jardín Arte Abierto, located on the 2nd floor of Artz Pedregal.
We recommend you to wear comfortable clothes and a cap.
During the workshop, the children must be accompanied at all times by their mother, father or an adult companion.
