Within the framework of artistic reactions, we will pay attention to modern realist approaches on the Czechoslovak art scene in 1918–1945. The series of art workshops will range between drawing and painting techniques. The workshops entitled Reality and Ideals will focus on themes such as lived reality, everyday objects and the phenomenon of still life. We will try to look at the chosen themes through the lens of new realisms. Through art making, we will create a new relationship to things and draw on each artist’s own perceptual space. We will be drawing with pencil or natural charcoal on paper during the art reflections.

During the workshops, titled Fact versus Fiction, we will focus on two levels – the real world and the realm of illusion, fantasy and imagination. During the creative work, we will also apply the features of magical realism. We will focus on actual reality which we will supplement with our own dreams, illusions and magical elements. The art work will focus on acrylic painting. The workshop will take place in the background of the studio at the Educational Centre of the GHMP, where we will be creating art using an easel.


This programme is designed not only for adults and seniors, but also for their children and grandchildren as part of an intergenerational encounter. The workshops are also open to foreign visitors.
