In the context of themes such as sustainability, nature, pollution and transience, Dorieke Schreurs has developed a workshop on “prehistoric paint” for kids. This means that the children will make art with homemade paint based on natural materials. This is in line with her work as a visual artist and researcher, with a focus on sustainability and cradle-to-cradle work.
The children are challenged to make their own paint from natural materials from their own environment. They also learn the difference between the use of harmless materials (natural paint) and polluting materials (acrylic paint).
After a brief instruction, the kids (group or individually) get started to make their own paint. They will then work with this paint to create their own modern prehistoric art!…The emphasis of this workshop, however, is on the paint making process; not on the visual result.
