Tropenmuseum: Plastic Monsters

During the spring break, children aged eight to twelve can come and make plastic monsters, under my guidance, at the Tropenmuseum Amsterdam. These art workshops are related to the newest exhibition Bali, behind the scenes. Children can already register through this link.

“A plastic container, cup, straw … During this workshop, visual artist Maartje Jaquet will be helping you to make your own monster using all kinds of stuff that can be found in the ‘plastic soup’. As an Art Teacher, Maartje gives art lessons to children and adults in all kinds of media, from photography to poetry. With her tips  and tricks you will get to work inside the museum’s studio. The ‘Bali, behind the scenes’ – exhibition also focuses on the plastic waste problem in the world. There you can see the work ‘Rainbow Dragon’ (a plastic monster) by the Balinese artist Made Bayak, as well as all kinds of creations from the Plastic Monster campaign by Greenpeace.”
