Miró Lab invites participants to explore the wonderful art of the Spanish surrealist master Joan Miró. Since 2017, Miró Lab has launched creative workshops in different cities of the world, inspiring people of different races, ages, genders and abilities to explore their own hidden artistic selves. The family art workshops embody Miró’s belief that art should be made accessible to all and encourage parents and children to turn Miró’s art into a part of themselves with their own hands and body, creatively re-interpreting the lines and symbols in Miró’s whimsical works on top hats and ordinary painting surfaces.

Eight art workshops for parents and children as well as four catwalk workshops for teenagers were originally scheduled to take place at Tai Kwun last February during the 48th Hong Kong Arts Festival. A long-distance collaboration was initiated among artists from Portugal, Macau and Hong Kong in the past few months to make it happen online in October.

Miró never stopped looking and creating . . . He believed there is more than one way to do things. Let’s go do-it-yourself online!
