Artistic Creation Workshops for Families with Art Stories

En una caja de cerillas. Inspirado en Joseph Cornell

Three great American artists inspire us to gather together to create and experiment with different techniques as a family. Our guides are the Art Stories team, who specialise in creating unconventional activities to discover the language of art.

In a Matchbox (En una caja de cerillas). Inspired by Joseph Cornell

In this workshop we will learn all about Joseph Cornell, an insatiable collector who was always on the lookout for extraordinary objects, which he then masterfully combined in his boxes. We will make a collage of fantasy and reality, creating surreal associations with all kinds of images, always inside a box.
