Art Workshops for Groups

The MAC’s Art Workshops offer visitors of all ages an opportunity to enhance their aesthetic experience by trying out various techniques, media and materials related to a concept or theme inspired by the exhibitions presented. By encouraging artistic expression, they help develop participants’ desire and ability to create. In addition to these objectives, the workshops help demystify the creative process and make contemporary art more accessible thanks to their hands-on approach.

Participants will be invited to produce a self-portrait/silhouette that will reveal the space occupied by their body in public space. Graphic elements will energize the overall composition, which will also include a component inflated by their own breath.
