Saturday April 29, ‘Faces’ workshop for families © Museo Picasso Málaga



The works on view in Permanent Collection Dialogues with Picasso. Collection 2020–2023 and the temporary exhibition Picasso Sculptor. Matter and Body, which opens on May 9 as part of the ‘Picasso Celebration’ cultural programme, are the focus of the new workshops for families at the Museo Picasso Málaga. On April 29, May 20, and June 10 at 11.30 a.m., adults and children have a chance to learn more about art in the Museum’s galleries and teaching rooms.

Places can be reserved, at a cost of €5 per participant, via the website and at the museum’s ticket office.

As usual, for each new exhibition, the Museo Picasso Málaga presents ‘Museum in movement’, a specific programme of activities for families to enjoy art together and observe the various artistic languages, materials and supports used by Picasso in his works. At 11:30 a.m. on Saturday April 29, the activity entitled Faces introduces participants to Picasso’s works in the galleries of the Permanent Collection; they discover countless people portrayed by Picasso, some inspired by his relatives or pets, and others the product of his imagination. This activity offers families the chance to create fun portraits using materials as diverse as wood, cork, cardboard and acrylic paint, etc., which they can then hang in their homes, as if in a museum.

Entitled Sculpture Garden I and II, on Saturdays May 20 and June 10 at 11:30 a.m. two more sessions of ‘Museum in movement’ will take place at the MPM. They will focus on the upcoming exhibition Picasso Sculptor. Matter and Body, which opens on May 9 and will be the first of the exhibitions the MPM is staging as part of the ‘Picasso Celebration’ programme of commemorations of the 50th anniversary of the artist’s death.

For Picasso, sculpture was by no means a secondary aspect of his output; rather, he regarded it as a form of expression comparable to painting, drawing, printmaking or ceramics. Throughout his life, Picasso used all the materials available to him in his sculptures: wood, bronze, iron, cement, steel and plaster. Based on this, at the first session on Saturday May 20, workshop participants of all ages have the opportunity to create characters and forms from different materials, filling the garden of the Museo Picasso Málaga with their creations. A month later, on Saturday June 10, participants carry on exploring other materials in a second session of Sculpture Garden; using found objects, and alternating modelling and assemblage techniques, they can achieve amusing and amazing results.

These MPM ‘Museum in Movement’ activities are aimed at children of all ages accompanied by an adult. The price per participant is €5 (including children), and includes a free visit to the exhibition, as well all the materials needed to carry out the activity. Approximate duration: 90 minutes.

With the collaboration of Fundación ‘la Caixa’. You can register for all these activities on the website, and at the Museum’s ticket office.
