About the workshops

Drawing workshop: “The circle”

Artist: Stefan Schröder

Using drawing techniques this workshop discovers the visual power of the geometrical form, the circle. Each participant discovers the unique shape of the circle by using color pencils and free hand drawing techniques. The perfect circle does not exist neither is it possible to draw a perfect one. For generations Chinese and Japanese artists have used the circle and its powerful shape in the art of calligraphy.

In this family workshop, each participant will draw a circle or two, and discover the inner and outer space of it. In the second part, of the 45 minutes section, each participant adds free visual narratives to the drawing. Together we will create a little universe mounting as many as possible of circles on a large piece of paper.

Sculpture workshop: “Fantastic animals”

Artist: Belén Santillán

We will start with a collective walk through the garden in front of the gallery space. We will collect stones, leaves, branches, having in mind an animal we have seen in Jeløya. Then, we will go back to the workshop and construct our animal with the collected material. After the construction moment is over, we will create a garden of fantastic animals and name them. The aim of this workshop is to be mindful of more-than-human-life that accompanies us during our visit.

Music workshop: “Xylophone Ensemble”

Artist: Wei-Ting Zeng

Xylophone Ensemble is a musical workshop where we will be creating a minimal-music composition together and play the composition on xylophones and percussions in the end. Minimal music is a form of music that employs limited musical materials, including repetitive patterns or pulses, steady drones, consonant harmony, and reiteration of musical phrases or smaller units. In the workshop, the participants will learn the patterns and be assigned to one musical pattern in the ensemble. We will use numbers to give instructions and compose together. The numbers are the score for the participants to know when they should play and when they should pause, as well as when the composition finishes.
