FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1988

Children are made up as their favorite animals during an art workshop at
the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

At Art Seminar: Lions
For Boys, Cats For Girls

Tel Aviv — Strange
creatures emanating floures-
cent light entered the pitch-
dark hall at the Tel Aviv
Museum of Art. They roared
and meowed and barked. In
the audience, a group of men
and women watched and
wondered.
As the lights went on, an
uproar of laughter and ap-
plause burst out: The floures-
cent creatures turned out to
be new graduates of a five-day
summer workshop for
children conducted by the
museum; the adults were
their parents, relatives and
friends.
The masquerade was the
culminating point of a week
of art-and-fun activities of the
workshop, centered on the
topic, "Animals and I." Using
animals as a theme is an
unusually effective way of in-
troducing youngsters to great
artists and enhancing their
artistic sophistication, accor-
ding to Mira Caspi, associate
education director at the
musuem.
Twenty youngsters from the
first to the sixth grades par-
ticipated in the carefully
designed program, which in-
cluded drawing, painting, and
sculpting. For ideas and in-
spiration, the children were
shown slide shows of animal
paintings by painters like
Picasso and Kokoschka and
the Israeli artists Moreh,
Reuven and Gutman.
On the first day, each child
was asked to choose a favorite
animal and paint and draw it
in the form of a large tag to
be attached to his or her shirt
or hat. The favorite animals
of boys turned out to be dogs,
lions and monkeys. The girls,
on the other hand, identified

with cats, rabbits and occa-
sionally dogs.
The second day was devoted
to explaining to the children
how animals survive in the
natural environments. On the
third day, fables and stories of
animals were read to the
youngsters, who were then
asked to translate what they
had heard into drawings.
The fourth day included
discussions of mythological
animals like dragons and the
flying horse pegasus, whom
the children were asked to
draw. They were also en-
couraged to create their own
imaginary animals out of
clay.
On the fifth and final day,
the children took part in an
animal carnival. Each
youngster worked on an
elaborate paper doll represen-
ting his or her favorite
animal. The children then
made themselves up as par-
ticular animals, using
flourescent paints, rouge and
lipstick, and marched into a
hall where their parents were
assembled.
The workshop showed that
the key to encouraging a
child's interest in art is in-
volvement, according to
Caspi.
