Have fun with colours! Painting with Limbs at Parkview museum focuses on the action painting of Viennese artist, Hermann Nitsch. It is part of The Parkview Museum’s Saturday Sketching series that draws inspiration from the museum’s ongoing exhibition, The Artist’s Voice.
Adults and children are encouraged to collaborate with one another to create an art piece using various parts of their bodies (eg. their feet, hands, forearms, etc) as ‘paintbrushes’ and ‘pencils’.
They could opt to splash paint onto the blank canvas to create splotches of various shapes, sizes and textures, as well as use charcoal sticks and crayons to create the art piece.
Through such an activity and process, participants are encouraged to focus on their actions and gestures while creating their artworks, as well as their feelings, thoughts and body movements while carrying out action-painting.
Light snacks and refreshments will be served. You are advised to bring an extra change of clothes. Aprons and protective sheets, as well as tissue paper/serviettes will be provided. The activity is suitable for participants of all ages. Adult supervision is advised for children under 6 years old.
