Activities for families and adults

A day with Warhol

Saturday 2 Jun. 2018

To coincide with the opening day of the exhibition Warhol. Mechanical Art, MPM will be offering a range of activities for all ages focussed on examining some of the formats the artist worked with during his prolific life.

The options for the day include activities such as participative visits for adults and print-making or serial art workshops for all the family. Visitors will also be able to learn about some of Warhol’s techniques and try them out themselves in the educational area that has been set up for the duration of the exhibition.

All the activities will take place in the museum’s garden and are free with the price of admission – which is always free for children.


Creating serial art. Workshop for all the family
Continuous activity from 10.30am to 1.30pm. 
This print workshop gives participants the chance to create prints inspired by the iconography of the Pop Art world Warhol created.

Wallpaper. Collective artwork
Continuous activity from 10.30am to 1.30pm. The idea is to create a collective wallpaper-like artwork inspired by some of Warhol’s most representative Pop Art designs.

Productions. Workshop for all the family
Continuous activity from 10.30am to 1.30pm. 
A collage and tracing workshop, based on the portraits of celebrities on show in the exhibition.

Guided tour of the exhibition. Adult visitors
At 12pm. and 1pm. (Limited places available).
A guided tour of the Warhol. Mechanical Art exhibition, in which visitors can discover some of the most iconic artworks of the 20th century, such as Before and After (1961), Three Coke Bottles (1962), Brillo Soap Pads Box (1964-1968), Gold Marilyn (1962), Liz (1963), Mao (1973) and Cow Wallpaper (1966). During the tour, other facets of the multidisciplinary artist will be examined, such as film, music and graphic work. Registration for this visit opens at 10am.

The exhibition also contains a special section for visitors of all ages, and for families in particular: Warhol Factory is an educational area where they can learn and try out for themselves some of the media and techniques the artist used to reproduce and multiply his Pop Art images, such as prints and transfers.
