Children’s Workshops “Introduction to Dance”

Along with the works of Edgar Degas, Paula Rego, Helena de Medeiros and ballet performances, our young visitors will have the chance to participate in free workshops promoted by the dance school EDD – Escola Domus Dança.

These workshops are a playful approach to the language of dance, for children with or without experience in this art. For this, the EDD will resort to the children’s imagination, encouraging the youngest to explore their first dance steps. The workshops also intend to initiate children in the coordination between music and motor action. The sessions are aimed at children between 5 and 10 years of age, divided into two groups: the first between 5 and 7 years, and the second between 8 and 10.

April 27th:

3 pm – Ages 5 to 7;

4 pm – Ages 8 to 10.

Day 11 of May:

3 pm – Ages 5 to 7;

4 pm – Ages 8 to 10.

Participation in the workshops is on a first-come, first served basis and is limited to 25 children in each of the groups. We advise children to wear comfortable sports clothing and non-slip socks to make the most of the experience.

Post-it transformed into Pixel Art

For sure you are familiar with the famous Post-it notes used as reminders in the work environment or even at home. State of the Art challenged the regular use of these small paper squares and developed a Post-it Art project with the objective to transform them into a creative, innovative art panel, resembling Pixel dolls from video games.

António Ferreira, the responsible designer, created a huge wall of more than 200 square meters in NorteShopping, with fluorescent colours, based on the concept “Glow in the Dark”.
