Storytelling, Art and Colour

with Carolina Cabrera

Art is about connecting the dots and seeing the bigger picture. The most famous artists in history were well-rounded people that were at the same time artists, engineers, scientist, mathematicians and poets.

Leonardo Da Vinci was an engineer, scientist and painter.

Michelangelo was a sculptor, architect, painter, botanist and poet.

William Blake was a poet and an artist.

For this reason, we are interested in showing the children how art connects with everything else, and everything else connects back to art.

In the past, we had the opportunity to visit and contribute to ArtSci exhibition at  ETH in Zurich, and explore the intersection between art and science.

This time we will have the opportunity in the coming weeks to explore the relationship between literature, in particular, storytelling and art.  We will be joined at the studio by Carolina Cabrera who is a librarian and social worker and currently regularly reads stories to children at the library in Baden, schools and kindergartens. She is also the author of a book, Ich zieh an, was mich glüklich macht, und du?

After hearing a story from Carolina, we will follow up with creative activities related to that particular story. For this first event we are planning to work with self-expression, colour and feelings.

Children have often strong emotions which range from joy and excitement, to anger and disappointment, and children are still in the process of learning how to process these; art can give them a tool for expressing their feelings in a positive and creative way.  

We will learn how different colours are related to different emotions: red for example can be used to express love or anger, blue tranquillity and sadness, orange creativity and excitement,  yellow joy, and how we can use these to create a piece of art for self-expression and fun!

Fundraising Event: Face Painting

27th Oct 2012

11 am to 4 pm

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” Tessa Edwards

JArt Studio-Gallery is organising a fun face painting event for charity which will take place in autumn, just before Halloween! Hence the theme of the day will be Halloween. All are welcome to take part, children as well as adults. Come dressed casually, or even better, show up in a fancy dress – so that getting your face painted will add that extra touch to your mask!

The price for a face painting will be 10 Fr each; however, donations for other amounts will also be accepted as this is a chance to contribute towards a good cause.

If you would like to take part but cannot make it for the day, you can still help/contribute by making a donation towards this event/organization via the “donate button” below, or directly via the Green Cross page.

All Proceedings in fact will go to the Swiss Green Cross which facilitates overcoming consequential damages caused by industrial and military disasters, and the clean-up of contaminated sites from the period of the Cold War. Central issues are the improvement of the living quality of people affected by chemical, radioactive and other types of contamination, as well as the promotion of a sustainable development in the spirit of cooperation instead of confrontation. This includes the involvement of all stakeholder groups affected by a problem.

Batik Style Painting

Saturday 25th Feb 2012

10 am to 6 pm

The name "Batik" - which means what is drawn - derives from the Indonesian words "amba" (to write) and "titik" (drop).

This technique of painting on fabric was probably already known and practiced by the Egyptians and was introduced in the Java Island (Indonesia) between 300 and 400 A.D. by Indian traders. In Europe, however, this painting style is today still not much known or widespread. This workshop, thus, will provide you with a unique opportunity to learn about this fascinating art. You will be introduced to Batik by working on a chosen design, reproduce it on a silk or cotton support, learn about different waxing procedures, colouring and drying of the fabric, removing of the wax and fixing of colour.

The workshop will run from 10 am to 6 pm and you will have the opportunity to create from one to three painted pieces including a scarf, a cushion cover or a painting.

This course will be taught by Ludovica who has lived in Malaysia for three years; it was in fact there that she discovered and  developed her passion for Batik painting.

This workshop will also be an excellent opportunity for spending some quality time together, meet new people and have lots and lots of fun!!

If this sounds interesting, join us at the studio-gallery on the 25th of Feb for a day of fun and creativity!!

Book now!! Places are limited!!

***Please give confirmation with at least 10 days notice***. 

Price per person: Fr 150.00 (price includes art material and a light refreshment )


Art Tours: Milan  

4th Dec 2011

Tour Description:

We will begin our tour of Milan by visiting the beautiful and imposing Duomo which is located in the heart of the town. The constructions of this impressive cathedral began in 1386 and lasted over 400 years; today, it has become the symbol of the city and is often described as one of the greatest churches in the world.

Next we will walk through to the glamorous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, where we will have a chance to admire some of the most prestigious fashion shops in Milan, see new trends, and if you wish, you can stop to have lunch or a coffee in one of its many shops and cafeterias. Through the gallery we will then reach the piazza housing the world renowned theatre of La Scala – Milan’s opera house where many famous artists including Maria Callas and Luciano Pavarotti performed, and also where the woks of composers such as Verdi and Puccini first debuted.  

Then we will walk through the Brera District - a fashionable and historic part of the city - until we reach the Castello Sforzesco, where we will have an opportunity to visit parts of its art collections.

But the highlight of our tour will be the chance to view Leonardo’s ‘Last Supper’ in the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie’s convent. This masterpiece was painted in the 15th century and it has recently been restored and brought back to its original state - it is in fact now possible to admire all its beautiful details and colours. This fresco has earned a place in the UNESCO world heritage list and its popularity made even more widespread by Dan Brown’s bestselling novel: The Da Vinci Code.
