Animals have always been a source of inspiration and representation in Art from prehistory to the present day. After all, Art is the means to explore our relationship with wildlife and helps us to redefine our behavior towards animals and the environment.
Members’ Event | Ode to Animals: Wild animals come to life at home through art!For Adults
At our second meeting, which is now addressed to adults, we will be drawing inspiration from the wildlife images by French artist Henri Rousseau, who painted wild animals in their natural environment although he never left France and never saw a jungle. We will become acquainted with the simplicity, naturalness and spontaneity of instinctive creation, the so-called naïve art.
Design - Implementation: Christina Tsinisizeli, visual artist
