# creative family workshop
Miró Lab invites participants to explore the wonderful art of the Spanish surrealist master Joan Miró. Since 2017, Miró Lab has launched creative workshops in different cities of the world, inspiring people of different races, ages, genders and abilities to explore their own hidden artistic selves. The workshops embody Miró’s belief that art should be made accessible to all.
The family art workshops encourage parents and children to turn Miró’s art into a part of yourself with your own hands and body, when they creatively re-interpret the lines, the symbols and other elements in Miró’s whimsical works respectively on top hats and ordinary painting surfaces.
Miró never stopped "looking" and "creating"...he believed "there’s more than one way to do things". Let’s go DIY online!
Eight art workshops for parents and children as well as four catwalk workshops for teenagers were originally scheduled to take place at Tai Kwun during the Hong Kong Arts Festival last February. A long-distance collaboration was initiated among artists from Portugal, Macau and Hong Kong in the past few months to make it happen online in October.
