WORKSHOPS FOR CHILDREN - FANTASTIC FORMS: “The Chiwara” (11-13h)

The Chiwara is a type of mask belonging to the Bambara of Mali. Chiwara was a mythical ancestor who taught the first people agriculture. In remembrance of this fantastic being – part human, part antelope, part pangolin – the grateful people created one of the most beautiful masks known in African art. Different shapes, forms, imagery and symbolism found in the Chiwara are reminds us of the inexhaustible creativity and inspiration that one finds in nature and its surrounding. Following a short tour of the Chiwara masks exhibited on the permanent display, children will be able to create their own Chiwara using the techniques of drawing, collage, assemblage, etc. Through the workshops, children will get acquainted with terms such as fantastic, realistic, expressive and abstract, and how these are transposed into a work of art.

The workshop is guided by Ana Knežević (art historian) and Milica Josimović (anthropologist).

The Workshop is in Serbian.

* Entrance: 150 dinar.

** The workshop does not require reservation!

*** Parents and guardians are kindly asked to bring children on time so that children are able to fully participate in the structured and prepared programme, and take full advantage of the creative time spent in the museum.
