introduction when I was a baby class 1 and 2

Young children are in years not so far from their origin, but in their feelings it is ages ago. It is interesting to see how they select the moments they think to be remarkable. During the introduction a selection of artworks in which children participate informs them about what it was to be so young. Their memory does not have real images available, but the photography these days is an important media to memorize their growing-up steps.
This workshop is different in the way that it is based on printed information and reflection on the art works.
