Art Friday is once again offering a free art activity for all primary school children. It feels very important in these times. The task provides a wonderful opportunity and a happy creative moment and it can be done at school or at home. Teachers or parents may need to help with preparation. Instructions are available on the Konstrundan website, www.konstrundan.fi/art_friday.
This year's task will be launched on Art Friday, 2.9.2022 on the website http://www.konstrundan.fi/art_friday . The film will remain there and the task can also be done later.
In the film, visual artist Anna Semerdjiev introduces herself and her work, after which she presents the task to the children. In the task Anna uses berries, coffee, lemon and baking soda and paints with them.
This year's film has been created by the production company Filmbutik, and new this year is that the film will be available in Swedish, Finnish and English.
The results can be shared on social media. Teachers or parents are encouraged to post pictures of the children's artwork on Instagram using the hashtag #konstensfredag #taiteenperjantai #konstrundan or to send the pictures to Konstrundan for uploading konstens.fredag(a)gmail.com.
