Workshop Claudio Cassano, art project for children of the free creativity development.
Monsters Models it’s an educational art project made by the collaboration of Claudio Cassano with children participating to his painting workshops. The concept it's to develop the free creativity of kids modifying pages of magazines with drawings and colors, transforming the models into monsters.
During the day children often draw pictures of the monsters they imagine at night, and a group painting workshop might help them to demystify their fear: the transformation of supernatural models and the creation of monsters that are physically harmless, happy and colorful, allow them to conquer their fears in a lighthearted way.
Beside this pedagogic side, the fact of draw and add colors on existing images with a guide of a teacher it’s important for children to increase their art skills.
The printed images mixed with their fresh colorful lines made by free and pure gesture give a new realism to these creatures, almost as series of contemporary artworks.
Monsters Models, started with a first series of workshops made at Villa Lena Art foundation in Tuscany and in France during the Art festival Lille 3000.
