Come in – put on painting apron – paint❗️
Forget the dreary everyday life by living out creativity – outside the #Corona crisis, KRASS gives children the tools to do so at the pro bono KiA from Mondays to Fridays, from 4-6 p.m. each day at Linienstrasse 78 in Düsseldorf. And for parents and children, the workshops are free! You can also view more photos here.
It has been open for over 2 years now. “My heart’s desire”, as Claudia Seidensticker calls the KRASS KinderAtelier. Because she helped plan it from the ground up. She has invested her heart and soul and time.
But above all, because of the little artists who drop by – quite shyly at first, sometimes with little self-confidence. “I can’t do it,” the artists Barbara, Duschka, Katja, Melanie, Mareike and Katja often hear.
Then they sit down next to the kids, pick up the brush themselves or mix the colors, show the techniques. Showing that there is something to the saying: “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
And then something happens that always amazes us at KRASS: the kids leave their protective walls, come out of their shells, confide in the artists and trust in themselves. This is especially evident during picture discussions, where the kids tell us something about their artworks. Whether they paint with Mareike’s pastel chalk, make small boats out of Barbara’s natural materials, or build a model village out of the tetrapaks that Tine collects: Behind each work of art are entire stories, incredibly exciting and touching. A matter of the heart.
