Our workshops are designed for younger children, however, they are also addressed to parents and grandparents. No matter the age, gender, race, and family background — everyone can participate. Also, what is a very important part of this art series, children are inspired while working together with older members of family or caregivers and see the importance of art and creativity.
During GARDENS art series, we will discover many diverse gardens as well as other objects of landscape architecture. We will find their original names, dates of creation, and locations. They are united by one thing – each of them is a “living work of art”, which, unlike buildings, paintings and sculptures, is constantly changing and surprising. It sprouts, grows, blooms, ripens, swings in the wind, or bends under raindrops. In dry climates, it dries and in cold climates, it falls asleep under the snow. It creates an absolutely magical world of shapes, smells, and colors – just like the nature that surrounds us. Gardens can have various forms and functions, and how they look and what they are used for depends on the people involved in their design – landscape architects. During our workshops, the project participants will try to enter into their roles. First, studying the existing fanciful and diverse gardens of the world, and later, on the basis of the garden learned, they will create their own projects with various design techniques. To convey their own visions, the participants of the workshops will use painting, drawing, collage and sculpture, and maybe other unusual materials to illustrate their own ideas.
