Children love our 'Printastique' workshops because they are super fun and promise an achievable goal. Kids will try anything once but art is challenging and early frustrations can turn them off. Printastique develops their dexterity and colour theory and delivers an awesome result. Also, there is a wide range of kits that let you develop your technique and take it as far as you like.
With the help of original Printastique printing blocks developed here in France, workshop participants are actually collaborating across time and space with master artists such as Katsushika Hokusai and Henri Riviere to re-create beautiful pieces of art.
Being creative is a great way to calm the mind and working with your hands with paint on real paper builds focus. This is why our workshops are great to practice being in the moment.
Suitable for children ages 8 yrs upwards, parents/adults are welcome too. Sessions last about 1.5 - 2 hours, and believe it or not, even our youngest participants remain engaged the whole time.
Currently at Micro Folie in Saint Germain en Laye and Musee Guimet in Paris (National Museum of Asian Art). Bookings can be made on their respective websites. Let us know if you need help or would like to organise a session of your own.
We start with a brief presentation about the history Ukiyo-e, followed by some instruction on how to print using our blocks. There is a short talk about colour theory and how to choose colours, and then we start printing!
