Bērnu & ģimeņu diena ISSP Galerijā

ISSP pirmo reizi aicina uz bērnu & ģimeņu dienu!
Svētdien, 25. novembrī, plkst. 12.00 - 14.00

Šobrīd ISSP Galerijā redzama mākslinieces Diānas Tamanes fotogrāfijas izstāde "Pasūtījums". Izstāde ir kopdarbs ar mākslinieces ģimenes locekļiem - dažkārt viņas radinieki mēdz lūgt, vai Diāna nevarētu uzņemt kādu fotogrāfiju, ko pielikt pie sienas. Viņu gaume ne vienmēr sakrīt, bet šoreiz Diāna nolēmusi beidzot izpildīt savas ģimenes vēlmes.

Bērnu un ģimeņu dienā būs iespēja tuvāk iepazīties ar izstādi un piedalīties radošā aktivitātē mākslas pedagoģes Noras Vrubļevskas vadībā. Piedaloties spēlē un kopīgas apmeklētāju sienas veidošanā, maziem un lieliem ģimenes locekļiem būs iespēja padomāt par tādiem jautājumiem kā - Kas ir māksla? Ko vēlamies redzēt pie savu māju sienām? Kā atšķiras dažādas izpratnes par skaisto?

Aicinātas piedalīties ģimenes ar bērniem visdažādākajos vecumos. Ieeja bez maksas. Iepriekšēja pieteikšanās nav nepieciešama, iespējams ierasties jebkurā laikā no 12.00 - 14.00. Aktivitāte aizņem ~30min.

Līdzi jāņem: kāda uzrunājoša pastkarte, fotogrāfija, vai attēli no žurnāla, ko izmantot kopīgas kolāžas veidošanā. Būs iespējams izmantot arī ISSP sagādātos materiālus.
