Family Sundays

Art workshops for families - Spring 2020

Trembling Tulips

In the spring, the tables at the Musée workshops will start acting fidgety. Nevertheless, we will improvise doodle-like drawings of fragments of tulips. Because of the instability of our work surface, the lines we draw will be a little crooked, awkwardly altered. These subtle distortions will make our sketches utterly original. Through a simple process, our drawn lines will then be turned into reliefs. Finally, we will use a brush to paint the entire composition a single colour. For this project, we will take our inspiration from a unique wall sculpture called Debby Lexier’s Tulip Drawing, 2008. This work from the Musée collection is the result of a novel collaboration between the artist Micah Lexier and his mother, Debby Lexier.

About En famille at the MAC

Our En famille at the MAC activities are intended for families, familiar with contemporary art or are new to it: children age four and up, teenagers and adults. In a relaxed atmosphere and under the guidance of our welcoming, energetic staff, participants observe original works of art and discover, through a hands-on approach, new ways of creating.
