On Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. visitors can get creative for free in Atelier CoBrA. The studio is open to the public and enthusiastic volunteers are there to encourage you.
First take a look at the inspiring works of art and then play with colours and materials, discovering and marvelling like the Cobra artists did. Here and there you will find instructions to practice new techniques, often linked to the current exhibition. Take the work home as a souvenir of the Cobra Museum or leave it hanging in the museum for inspiration. It is all up to you! Atelier CoBrA is located on the first floor. Information at the reception desk.
The Other Story – Art from Moroccan modernism
Have you ever heard of the Hand of Fatima or the Khamsa? It is a protective hand-shaped amulet, from the popular belief of the Middle East and North Africa. Often the hand of Fatima is combined with the nazar, a repellent against the evil eye.
Come and make your own hand of Fatima in Atelier CoBrA. Come draw it, paint it and decorate it. Take it home and hang it in your house for protection. In the Atelier, you will find even more creative ideas to make in connection with this exhibition.
Atelier CoBrA can also be rented for groups of children or adults.
