Creative Saturdays 2020 / 2021
creative workshop for children (5 - 9 years)
UGM, Strossmayerjeva 6
Saturdays, 12 September 2020 - 15 May 2021, 10:00 – 11:30

guided by: Brigita Strnad, UGM leading educator, Urša Rotman, professor of fine arts, professional co-worker at UGM

At Saturday's workshops at UGM, children learn about fine arts and develop their fine arts skills. Their specialty is working in direct contact with quality works of art, which has an invaluable educational moment. We are surrounded by paintings, statues, drawings and other works of art throughout socializing and creating. Children get to know them in the right size, walk around them, maybe even touch them. Through games, stories and various tasks, we encourage them to in-depth observation, understanding and experience of the exhibited works of art. It is essential, however, that we create an open space in which everyone can express their views, opinions, ideas. In the upcoming season 2020 - 2021, we are exploring the art of the 20th and 21st centuries through the exhibition 100+ Highlights from the UGM Collection. The UGM collection, as an important part of Slovenia's artistic and cultural heritage, is discovered through its location in Maribor and NE Slovenia, as well as its media and content diversity.

As part of Children's Week, we invite children and their adult companions to a creative gathering in the inspiring environment of the museum and the exhibition 100+ Highlights from the UGM Collection. A tour of the exhibition will be followed by an art workshop, where we will check how well family members know each other. The creative workshop is part of Children's Week and is free of charge.

Creative Saturdays / Just what will be created?
sculptural workshop
Saturday, 24 October 2020, 10:00 - 11:30
What about abstract art? What does it represent? What does it communicate? How is it created? On viewing the exhibition 100+ Highlights from the UGM Collection, we will learn about the characteristics of abstract, non-objective art. A sculpture workshop will follow, where we will create from wood. Just what will be created?
