Limited Edition Gallery in Warsaw and Gabriela Cichowska, an award-winning illustrator, invite you to a Children’s Day workshop on Saturday (June 1). The classes serve as an introduction to the exhibition Bears and Bears, which will be on display from June 7 until the end of August at the Atelier Gallery Limited Edition. The exhibition will present Cichowska’s works oscillating around representations of the bear.
Bears and Bears, is a project that will include an exhibition of the artist’s works combined with original workshops for children. The initiative aims to popularize art, which translates into the creative development of children, shaping their tastes from an early age. During the class, young painting enthusiasts will make colorful portraits of the king of the forest – the bear, which is a constant motif in Gabriela Cichowska’s work. Children will be able to polish their skills under the guidance of a professional who will guide them through the world of art. The goal of the workshop is to prepare younger kids for conscious participation in art, introducing them to selected terms and techniques.
Gabriela Cichowska’s art is characterized by freshness and authenticity, unconventionality of applied workshop solutions, those grown out of tradition and those developed, her own. Her work, however often associated with a literary background, providing a garment for foreign thoughts, can also fully exist outside the volume. On the other hand, her pure art, endowed with the quality of poetic mood-building, melancholic imagination, can provide fodder for the imagination of an artist operating with words and be an interesting source of inspiration for him,” comments Dr. Dariusz Leśnikowski, theater director, art critic.
Through the workshop, children will discover fun that teaches. Specially prepared themes of classes adapted to the age of young artists will be an unforgettable experience and the beginning of a great adventure with the world of art. The interesting workshop format will enable younger participants to discover new aspects of illustration and find out that contact with art can be easy, enjoyable and inspiring.
The most interesting work will be rewarded with a book by Przemysław Wechterowicz’s The Tale of the Read Bear and the Rabbit Who Fell from the Sky, featuring unique illustrations by Gabriela Cichowska, which emphasize the eloquence of the fairy tale text and stir the reader’s imagination.
Complementing the actual exhibition will be a virtual ARTEexhibition available online at: www limitededition.pl and on the website of the Market and Art portal www.artekspozycje.rynekisztuka.pl.
* Gabriela Cichowska’s paintings will be available for purchase at a nice teddy bear price (from about PLN 1,200 to PLN 3,500).
