A rainbow made of tempera paints, a leaf made of clay, a colour print on cloth, gold dust, even a self-portrait collage: all of this can fit inside an ‘imaginary’ bag.
Very simple materials and imagination is all that is needed to participate in the visual arts workshop “Create an imaginary bag”. Through teamwork, being with others and positive interaction, children will create small works of art, developing their particular skills and enhancing self-esteem and mutual respect.
As they complete the workshop, they will have made an ‘imaginary’ bag containing all of their creations, with many new friendships and colourful memories as well.
