Learning with Translation is Dialogue
Andi Thea has done it again! The creativity continues as she transforms her Wavos design into a coloring sheet for the fifth installation of Translation is Dialogue.
This time her work is reaching the people of Helsinki in far away Finland for the unKontained Translations show at Lasipalatsin aukio. The kids from Little English Kindergarten in Kallio came to make art with us at the container space to bring alive their own color combinations for Andi’s ‘Wavos’ coloring sheet. As we look at pictures, hear sounds, touch, smell, and taste we are actually having a conversation with our senses and communicating with the world! It sounds funny, but don’t think too hard and just make whatever comes into your head! The idea is to do and enjoy the process of making art.
Here’s something for you to try at home. Look at this picture titled ‘Drifting’ created by Sari Toivola and draw what will happen next.
Will the girl in the picture swing so high in to the sky or will she jump into new lands or oceans? What is she dreaming of? I’d love to see what you think! Please draw, sculpt, paint, or make a piece of music to however the story will continue. You can email your art to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to it!
