Children’s imagination is a world for the impossible. From a child’s perspective, abstract and ambiguous things are given certain shapes/ figures, which illustrate their logical as well as emotional perspective. The works of the late sculptor Điềm Phùng Thị, simplified to a system of 7 modules from which she transformed them into countless configurations, recall that pristine, pure sensibility of a child.
Inspired by Điềm Phùng Thị’s modules and the way she crafted her work, this workshop ‘The magical modules’ gives introduction to an incredible figure of Vietnamese modern art. Through the process of interacting and improvising with the artist’s modules using a range of techniques from drawing, collage to stamp printing, The Factory wishes to strengthen children’s love of art, allowing them a new approach to find the magic from within and to interpret the world around them.
This workshop is suitable for children aged 7 and older, no prior artistic skills are required.
► Once registered, participants will be provided with the following:
- All workshop materials
- A humble lesson on Điềm Phùng Thị’s modules and her practice.
- Detailed instructions on how to work with different materials and image-making techniques (collage, stamp printing).
