The When We See Us: A Century of Black Figuration in Painting exhibition, which is currently on show on level 3 of Zeitz MOCAA, brings together artworks from the last 100 years by Black artists from around the world. The artworks explore Black self-representation and celebrate Black joy. Inspired by one of the exhibition’s themes – Joy and Revelry – the Centre for Art Education’s May Family Learning Workshop invites participants to create their own figurative painting that captures a moment of joy they have experienced in their lives.
Run by Amy Cornfield, Zeitz MOCAA’s Family Learning Workshops at the Centre for Art Education (CFAE) offer parents/guardians and their child(ren) a space to share a creative experience and develop their engagement with art, together. Materials and equipment are provided along with a snack break.
This workshop is limited to 25 participants, including parents/guardians.
