Elementaly school puples and junior highschool students, in total 20, are attended our workshop to understand abstract paintings by making it!
At the begining, we confirm that the most part of the participants do not understand the abstract paintings, which are drawn by famous paintors such as Picasso and Matisse. After confirm the fact, an instructer introduces how to enjoy the picture. Then, the participants start making abstract pictures. Because this is the first day, they can borrow some part of the existing pictures. Some participants can draw many pictures using ThinkingSketch.
