In our creative workshops, we aim to deepen familiarity with various visual art techniques in relation to the given exhibition.

For 4-8-year-olds: movement and creativity
The smallest children are introduced to the concepts and techniques of visual arts by experience-based pedagogical means. We transmit knowledge about artworks, the museum and visiting the museum in a playful, exploratory way. We develop gross and fine motor skills and the capacity to absorb information. We differentiate even within the age-group: we transmit less knowledge to the smallest ones with more games and crafts , while we initiate longer discussions with the elder kids. The development of body consciousness, self-recognition, the capacity for self-reflection, and the strengthening of social competencies are important to us. We provide space for autonomy, creativity and the joy of discovery.

Length of the museum lesson: 40-45 minutes, HUF 500/person

The location of the museum class varies depending on the location of the exhibitions.

For 9-13-year-olds: creative workshop
We provide for this age-group the opportunity for intense creative work at every workshop, in which the children’s vivid, limitless fantasy plays an important role.

We aim to familiarize students with techniques that they otherwise would not have the opportunity to encounter in school. Each workshop is much more than just trying out new techniques, however: during our workshops, after learning about the given artworks, we provide creative answers to the questions raised during the discussions. The aim is for every pupil to understand and process the situations encountered, and to get an overview of the problems related to the artwork, resolving the contradictions for themselves – and raising further questions about art, the world and themselves through the artwork created.

For 14-16-year-olds: interactivity and autonomy
Community existence is very important for young adolescents, and they can experience this in the museum. We create a democratic atmosphere in our workshops, in which the museum educator is present as a moderator, and as a supporter in the interaction between the students and the artworks. Creating situations for debate inspired by the artworks is important to us, in which there is no sole correct answer or solution, but living, functioning interpretations can co-exist side by side. We seek relations between individual interpretations, and we create based on the needs of the class  (following consultation with the teacher). The creative work is most often planned as group work, through which social competence, communication, understanding and the capacity for cooperation is enhanced, as well as group cohesion.We consider it important to sensitize and develop receptivity to the differentiation and the problems of the Other.

For 16-year-olds and up: communication and self-recognition
We hold interactive guided tours combined with lesser visual elements for the elder adolescents. We relate the artworks to current issues – discussing the larger questions of man in the world. We smuggle into the discourse concepts from knowledge theory, visual theory  and art history. We consider it vital to relate the artworks to current issues in order to strengthen the capacity for self-reflection through the questions that arise by way of the artworks, to help them define and represent their own viewpoints, and to also be able to examine the message from a critical perspective.

Naturally, we also hold workshops for the oldest kids in which they can learn new techniques through a longer creative process. We consult with the teachers to develop the best type of workshop for the group.
