Healthy Holidays with A Dose of Painting28 May 2018
Workshops for children
Children from Madagascar, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, living in poverty and often coming from rough areas of their home cities, have taken part in art workshops run by volunteers from MISEVI Society. “Man on the Moon” was the main topic and the children were asked to create plasticine works on square-shaped modules
Painting the picture
Anyone can participate in the project. Under the supervision of dr Marcin Kowalik form Cracow Fine Arts Academy, volunteers paint pictures based on photos of the modules created by children during the workshops. We have started in Cracow at the FOCA Contemporary Art Festival and will be carrying on the project in different locations until November 2018.
Once the painting is finished an auction will take place. Co-organizer, Art in House Auction House, guarantees that all paintings will be sold and the money collected will go to MISEVI Society. On 6 December 2018 the funds will be donated to directly aid the children participating in the project.
Man on the Moon
A metaphor for seclusion and longing for a better, often elusive world,
but also for faith in crossing boundaries and achieving the impossible

Paintings are final results of our project.
We hope to create over a hundred!
Creative ideas of children become plasticine works, which are then transferred onto a canvas with an outlined background. The project is meant to be for everyone - even for those with no experience in painting. Taking part in the project will not only let them practice their painting skills, but also learn the secrets of using the right perspective and colour. .
