Karel Appel

In this workshop we have introduced the evocative work of a Dutch artist, Karen Appel explaining also his link with CoBrA art. We have been showing some videos to make clearer how to depict from his art his admiration for children artworks and for their ability to realise them just using their instinct.

Our main focus was on his work “Questionning the children “, created in 1945. The children, inspired by the story of this painting, have realised their own works, imitating the artist’s experimentation with different kind of materials.
