Art Education

Art Education ― alive and diverse

We want to rouse interest and generate excitement for contemporary art in children, teenagers, adults, and families! For this exact purpose, the art education department of the Kunstpalais offers a diversified accompanying program for each of our exhibitions—depending on the occasion, exhibition, and content of the art. 

Would you like to book an offer? Use this form and get in touch with us!
Our extensive program includes guided tours, art talks, practical workshops, lectures, artists’ workshops, movie nights, and activities for all visitors from age 0 to 100. Targeted programs, interactive and open structures allow for a diverse approach to art and adjustments to the individual’s needs.
For educational institutions like schools, kindergartens, day care centers, and study groups the educational department of the Kunstpalais develops guided tours and workshops for each exhibition that are coordinated with the individual syllabus. This way the contact between contemporary art and school is facilitated.
Do you have any suggestions or specific ideas for your own projects at Kunstpalais? We are looking forward to hearing your ideas and wishes.  
Gladly we will introduce you to our different programs and we are looking forward to hearing your questions and seeing you registrations! In our event calendar, you can check when an event will take place.
Summer Holidays

During the summer holidays we offer creative and colorful holiday care for children ranging from the ages 6 to 16 at Kunstpalais. Together with a trained art mediator the exhibition will be explored playfully and the shown artwork can be seen through a child’s eyes. Inspired through that, there will be an opportunity to experiment on their own master artworks in the museum’s studio. There the children can realize their own ideas and associations. Matching the current exhibition we address our topic of the week. At the end of the holiday week there will be a little exhibition within the exhibition as a result. For this exhibition’s opening, parents, siblings, relatives, and friends are all kindly invited.

Both weeks cover the same topic. Please choose the dates that suit you best.

The holiday care is offered in collaboration with the Erlanger Bündnis für Familien.

Dates: 02.08 - 06.08.2021 & 09.08. - 13.08.2021
Time: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Ages: 6 to 12 years
Charges: 125 € per week (includes hot lunches)
Children with an Erlangen-Pass pay a charge of 2.50 € per day.
