Workshop for kids and children


Seems Like This Seems Like That

workshops for kids and children
from 20 March to 30 June 2014

On the occasion of the exhibition I nostri Anni '70. Libri per Ragazzi in Italia, the Art Workshop is offering new itineraries for different sections of the public. During the week the invitation is aimed at kindergarten and primary schools, while at the weekend there will be something new each month for smaller children and families.

Books for learner readers, books as visual games with forms and colours that transform so that they seem now this and now that. With Maria Enrica Agostinelli form becomes image along a thread of associations and overturning. With Iela Mari, stories without words in an alternation of forms that change from page to page. With Toti Scialoja signs and drawings where the word is the main ingredient of the game. At the workshop the books that mum and dad used to read open up like doors to reveal unexpected worlds still today: so a hole becomes an owl's eye, a red circle is transformed into an umbrella, the tortoise dressmaker and the zanzara (mosquito) without a zed surprise you by talking in rhyme.
