Junior Workshop / Photography and Illustration

At the beginning of the workshop, participants will learn a lot about street art and immerse themselves in the world of images of various artists. Equipped with cameras, we photograph forgotten, dark, empty corners, obstructed corners or inspiring “street furniture” such as garbage cans, mailboxes or sewage pipes with detective sensitivity on a trip through the city.



Back in the studio, the resulting photos will be printed out large and will form the basis for imaginative illustrations. In the original sense of the word, illustrating means “to illuminate” something. With a brush, pen or collage material, boring facades can be transformed into adventurous worlds of images and populated with city gods, plants or creatures from other worlds. After the young artists have let off steam on paper, they can build their favorite creation out of cardboard, for example, and install it in the photographed location like street art artists and then capture it photographically. Attentive passers-by will be delighted by the eye-catchers and perhaps even smile. Of course, all of the resulting works can be taken home at the end.
