RHYTHM AND GEOMETRY FOR BALENCIAGA

This family activity involves a music and architecture laboratory based on Cristóbal Balenciaga’s work.

The activity wishes to convey the concepts of form and geometry that are evident in Cristóbal Balenciaga’s creations (triangle, square, and circle). Students will draw these geometric figures accompanied by live music, and then transfer these drawings to the three dimensions.

Once created, these figures will be projected on to a white canvas, creating a world of lights and shadows. The workshop will be taught by an architect and a musician.

Date: 20 October

Timetable: 12-1.30 p.m.

Aimed at: Families with children aged between 4 and 12 years of age.

Language: Bilingual (Basque/Spanish).

Price: €5 for children and €7 for adults.

Subject: XX LA CASA DEL VACÍO

La Casa del Vacío school of art and architecture is creating programmes and teaches year-round classes in schools, cultural centres, museums and other institutions. Architectural concepts such as three dimensions, moving from flat to volume and the use of geometry are worked on. The activities are aimed at children, families, young people and adults. The architects teaching the course lead the process providing tools that participants can use to work by themselves and according to their capabilities. The architecture workshops operate as a laboratory of ideas where the results are obtained on the basis of trial and error. Recycled material is used to foster a sustainable environment and to offer the option of continuing the activity outside of the workshop.
