City scapes

Grade 2 and above
The city views in the exhibition "Frankfurt Once?" show what has fascinated artists over the centuries about the urban landscape. In the workshop, individual sketches are made outside in the urban space, or from town models in the museum, and then interpreted in the painting studio.


Grade 3 and above
The portrait wall in the exhibition "Frankfurt Once?" displays very diverse kinds of portraits. Through drawing or photography, the group workshop approaches the self-image, and then works in the art studio on self-portraits or mutual portraits in large-format acrylic.

Miniature paintings

Grade 4 and above
Inspired by the miniature works in the Prehn and Morgenstern painting collections, kids create their own miniatures with acrylic paint in the art studio. The various genres are discussed, as well as the technique of acrylic painting. At the end, the group can put together their own miniature cabinet of works.

Still lifes

Grade 4 and above
Kids observe classic still life paintings from the Daems and Prehn collections, then build their own still life in the art studio using interesting objects. The workshops centres on presenting unusual objects, seeing things from a new angle and finally interpreting them on a large format in acrylic or other techniques.

Working with acrylic, drawing or making a collage is possible in all workshops.
