Optical Experimentation
Object animation worskhop open to children
November 05 through 06, 2011
at MNCARS | Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía
Madrid, Spain
free admission until full capacity is reached


This workshop is open to children between 6 and 12 years old, and will start with a brief visit to the abstract art collection at the Reina Sofía Museum, making a first approach to great abstract classic’s that will boost the kids’ imagination for their own experimentations.

We propose the realization of a stop-motion animation, turning the Dot and the Line into scenic elements. For this, we’ll use various translucent and reflective surfaces and matte materials, light sources, filters and volumetric objects.

We’ll videotape and photograph the obtained imagery and record sounds produced by the children and the various objects featured in the animation. Finally, we’ll edit the images and sounds with digital editing software.
