« Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. » — Pablo Picasso
Guided tours and workshops
Our programme for school classes includes guided tours in dialogue format on selected works from the collection and the temporary exhibitions, with the option to book creative activities in the workshop. The content and method will be geared to the school type concerned and the pupils’ interests and development stage.
Our early childhood care and education programme for visitors aged 3 to 5 is designed around play and open creative processes. The activities link children’s everyday experiences with art-related topics. In the workshop, the focus is very much on the children’s own interests, creativity, and having fun with activities and experiences.

Education and training
Events for teachers and teacher training colleges allow participants to further their own knowledge, share experiences in the classroom or with colleagues and gain insights into the methods of art education. We'll be happy to organise a training for you.
We also offer further training in early childhood education for nursery school teachers and heads, young children’s care specialists and playgroup leaders. The Kunsthaus is happy to share the knowledge that comes from many years of experience with visitors aged 3 to 5 in the art workshops.
