Workshops

(Street) art workshops for kids, adolescents and adults

In addition to the creation in the studio and the public space, Various & Gould regularly conduct (street) art workshops for children, adolescents and young adults in Germany and abroad. The workshops are usually hosted in collaboration with external partners and institutions, being developed individually and approaching different subjects. Although each participant contributes to the project, the focus of the workshops is always on the composite work.

The aim is to give participants the opportunity to be creative, work together in a team and experiment with different materials. Additionally, Various & Gould teach people without any artistic background the basics and -above all- the fun of various techniques such as screen printing or collage. The results are always long-acting, hence the produced artworks will usually be exhibited afterwards and made accessible to the public.

“If you take a look at the workshops they’ve held, you’ll realise how fundamental the communicative aspect of art is for Various & Gould. They told me about some of their experiences and particularly stressed how inspiring and enriching it’s been for them to introduce children, adolescents and young adults to art – and to their own creativity as well.”Anna Martini, ARTCONNECT BERLIN, 2015


“Some think they are not creative, and when they find themselves in front of a blank canvas, they feel overwhelmed and don’t know what to do with it. By introducing art as a game, we’ve tried to help them find a way to acknowledge the opposite and discover their innate creative potential.”Various & Gould, 2015


“[…] One of the most exciting moments for everyone was the time when we posted the posters. As for every artist, the exhibition is very important; we did ours in an open space, on the walls of Prizren. What could be more satisfying than to have our ‘gallery’ admired by locals and tourists every day?”Doris Manu, participant, DE/CONSTRUCTING Identities, 2011
