Manege will shortly be hosting the next event in its educational programme for children – Growing Up Art. This spring’s series of events are collectively entitled Neither Quite Mouse or Frog..., and focus on depictions of animals in visual art. The second of these sessions will explore the fish as a symbol used by artists.
Throughout history, people have viewed animals variously as heroes, gods, adversaries, helpers, and of course, symbols. The course looks at people’s relationship with the animal kingdom in the context of traditions and works of art.
The meetings are led by Vladimir Korolkov, who will already be familiar to young visitors for his discussions on modern art. The second event will take place on Sunday 21 April and will look at how the fish has been depicted in art. It will begin at 12:00 and last for an hour and a half, including the interactive part.
Advance registration is required. The number of spaces is limited.
Dates and topics of future course events:
12 May – the bird (Legs, Wings, and Tail)
19 May – searching for critters (Symbolism in Works of Art)
