We’re loving this fun art project inspired by screenprints of artist Beatriz Milhazes.

This family activity sheet, linked below, suggests different ways of looking at and talking about the exhibition, Beatriz Milhazes Screenprints 1996-2011, currently on display at The Gallery at Windsor in Vero Beach, FL.  The activity sheet, created by Whitechapel Gallery’s Educational Department for the Whitechapel Gallery in London and The Gallery at Windsor, includes ideas for how to make artworks inspired by Milhazes’ prints, using objects from everyday life and some basic art materials.

Beatriz Milhazes is one of the leading artists living and working in Latin America today. Using inspiration from her hometown of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the artist makes prints using sheets of plastic and glue to place the paint on the canvas.

Recently, children from The Windsor residential community created art from ideas on the activity sheet in a fun-filled event, where children aged three to six-years-old learned how to create stamp prints with potatoes and sponges.

The art program at The Gallery at Windsor was launched in 2002 and has built an international reputation with recent shows featuring great artists such as Ed Ruscha, Peter Doig and Alex Katz.
