Join artist Debora Adachi for an exciting live art session for children aged 5-7 and their grown-ups, where we will explore fun ways to build our own creatures!
We will use different shapes and forms, both geometric and organic, to create our characters. And that's not all... We'll also play with magic dice to bring our creatures to life!
Through games, drawing prompts, collage and storytelling, we will embark on a creative journey to make adorable characters filled with charm and humour. This workshop is all about embracing your intuition and instinct to create freely. It's a space where improvisation is encouraged and mistakes are welcomed!
Are you ready to join us for this special moment of creativity? Let's come together, share our creative energy, and have an amazing time making our own unique characters. Don't forget to bring your imagination and a willingness to have fun!
