Trend, un mosaico per parlare di arte, moda, ecologia e natura


Trend, un mosaico per parlare di arte, moda, ecologia e natura
20 settembre 2013

After the extraordinary success of the first edition, which involved more than 160,000 primary school children, Kids Creative Lab, an educational project that arose from the collaboration between the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and OVS, has returned. This year, the initiative has been renewed thanks to the participation of Trend as technical sponsor, who will supply tiles of recycled glass for participants to collectively create an enormous mosaic.
The project is open to all primary school children in Italy who are willing to try their hand at the mosaic technique with the !Tessere! artist’s kit, and thus get to know the artistic tradition through an original and creative workshop. The themes of inspiration for this second edition are ecology and nature: through the creation of colourful patterns and their optical effects, and by using different colours based on the region, the works reflect the natural and regional elements of each geographic area, composing a symbolic map of our country once assembled. In fact, the works of the young artists will be part of a collective installation which will be on display at the Peggy Guggenheim from April 25th to May 4th 2014.
Kids Creative Lab is an opportunity to apply creativity that characterises the world of art and other matters that are purely scholastic, such as geometry, geography and history, with regard to ecology and nature, while working with exceptional materials and techniques.
