In this collaborative workshop, we’ll use color, texture and pattern to conjure a world of fantasy. Watch as our small prints reveal an enchanted surprise once assembled. This workshop coincides with Matthias’s solo exhibition Fairy Tales and Castles: Between Reality, Imaginary Beings and Places, on view at Westchester Children’s Museum May-July 2022. Recommended for ages 3-7.
About the Artist
Based in New York, Matthias Kern was born in Celle, a small German city south of Hamburg. From a very early age he was exposed to various forms of art and attended all the art classes that were available in his hometown. Over the years,Matthias experimented with various artistic expressions including watercolor, acrylic and pastel, as well as printmaking. He enjoys working in the older printmaking techniques as well as more modern techniques of intaglio, encompassing dry point, aquatint, mezzotint, line etching, silk screen, monotype and woodcut.
His vision is to achieve with his art feelings that we all have experienced, and to allow his audience to personalize those emotions to mean something specific for them. Matthias Kern invites you to Be transported back to that world where our imaginations ran free.
Recommended ages: 3-7
