October 3, 2018 will be dedicated to children and families: “The Programme with the Mouse” (WDR) has called for the seventh nationwide “Door Opener Day”. In Schleswig-Holstein, six doors will open that are otherwise closed to children, including the printing workshop of Norbert Weber.
In the afternoon there will be a participatory action. The art library in the Bootshaus opens its doors to ten children between the ages of 3 and 6. There they can learn how to borrow original works of art. They choose a work of art, take it with them into the exhibition room and use it as a stimulus for their own painting.
They learn how to make a monotype. With all kinds of tools, paint is applied to a plastic plate and then printed by the only professional monotype printer far and wide on a heavy press on fine laid paper.
The campaign lasts approximately two hours (13:00 – 15:00). Participation is only possible after registration at firstname.lastname@example.org (limited number of places).
To work as a monotype printer means to combine the joy of experimenting with the greatest technical precision and to be a partner in the creative process for the little artists: “I’m happy to be able to provide even more insight for one or the other mouse fan on the door opener day”.
