Miss Dot and Mr Point are back in PLATO! Workshop for children (1,5–2,5 years) with Hana and Tomáš Volkmer.

Miss Dot and Mr Point are looking forward to painting again with children on a huge white drawing area, using many kinds of brushes and rollers, colourful adhesive tapes, and large foam stamps. Non-toxic paints that can be mixed boldly will be available. We can also paint with our little hands and feet.

The workshop is accompanied by two crayons—Miss Dot and Mr Point. The essence of the workshop is the joy brought about by painting, exploration of what is possible to do with colours and the joint creation of the youngest artists (aged 1.5 and up) and their parents in a large space. The workshop is made up of an introductory, movement, instructional, art, relaxation, and story time bloc. The authors are primarily inspired by the 5,000 m2 of PLATO. Come with your children to create in a focused and calm environment and use the opportunity to meet, maybe even get to know each other.

This joint art workshop for children and their parents will be led by Hana and Tomáš Volkmer. We can all create together!
