Getting young visitors excited about art and culture: the wide-ranging educational program of the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen not only contains a broad range of offerings that encourage children to get involved with art, but also a variety of activities designed to foster their overall development, including creative and verbal abilities as well as social competency.
“Bilderjäger”: an art club for children
Aged 7 and over
Would you like to get involved with art in a serious way? Then join our art club and become a Picture Hunter (“Bilderjäger”). As a member, you will get a look behind the scenes at the museum. Twice monthly, the Picture Hunters explore current museum presentations while becoming creative as well through alternating topics. Dates and topics will be sent to club members four times annually.
Workshops (during the holidays as well)
For children 2 years and older
Requirement: action and creativity! Inspired by originals in the museum, young participants create their own works, experimenting with various techniques, exploring art through their own artistic activities. In our courses and workshops, children work with paint, clay, photography, film, drawing tools, and theater – on occasion, there is dancing as well.
For children 5 years and older
A birthday at the Kunstsammlung is a unique experience. Children attend a special kind of party, with all of the guests going in search of hidden art objects and allowing their creative talents to flourish.
For children 6 years and older
Available for children 6 years and older in conjunction with some special exhibitions are “exhibition journals” in which young visitors can record their impressions and experiences in the museum. On the basis of informative, age-appropriate texts and questions about the art, participants can familiarize themselves with the exhibited works. Needless to add, children can take their “exhibition journals” home with them – as mementos of a stimulating museum visit.
Art is global! Everywhere in the world, artists develop new ideas, creating astonishing and fantastic works of art. Their families, friends, and colleagues – often coming from a variety of different countries – also play important roles. In the program “Minimix,” we go in search of clues – which may even take us around the world. In the process, we encounter singular, enthralling visual worlds that inspire our own creative experimentation. Let’s go! Whether you come from Düsseldorf or are new in town – all children and their adult chaperones are welcome.
