Saturday Sketching: Painting with Limbs

Saturday Sketching: Painting with Limbs

Painting with Limbs focuses on the action painting of Viennese artist, Hermann Nitsch.


Participants of all ages are encouraged to collaborate with one another to create an art piece using various parts of their bodies (eg. their feet, hands, forearms, etc) as 'paintbrushes' and ‘pencils’. They could opt to splash paint onto the blank canvas to create splotches of various shapes, sizes and textures, as well as use charcoal sticks and crayons to create the art piece. Through such an activity and process, participants are encouraged to focus on their actions and gestures while creating their artworks, as well as their feelings, thoughts and body movements while carrying out action-painting.

For this activity, participants are advised to bring an extra change of clothes. Aprons and protective sheets, as well as tissue paper/serviettes will be provided for our participants. The activity is suitable for participants of all ages.

Adult supervision is advised for children under 6 years old.
