Video workshop: Triangular Head, Square Body

Because the City Art Gallery Ljubljana is currently closed for visitors and we cannot invite you to creative workshops at our exhibition venue, we prepared a web workshop for the youngest to accompany Dragica Čadež’s exhibition. We took a walk through the wooden forest of the artist’s sculptures and found inspiration among the exhibits for the creation of our own artworks.
