Gerhard Richter

Today we have been exploring the way Gerhard Richter realised his abstract canvases. After explaining to the children the key ideas expressed in the German artist works, they have started to apply thick layers of color on their card paper. They then overlap the colors with new ones, choosing them just led by their emotion. Eventually they scraped away the layers of color by using different tools, in this way they have been realizing that through Richter’s way of working the result is both beautiful and totally unpredictable.
