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. 
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.

Special Guided Tours

In addition to our regular guided tours, we offer Special Guided Tours. These fresh approaches and contexts expand our program. The content and aim of these tours will be tailored to the participants’ needs. We guarantee new perspectives and extraordinary experiences. Below you can find out more about our wide-ranging guided tour program.

Residentsʼ Guided Tour
For our Residentsʼ Guided Tours interested and art enthusiastic residents of Erlangen take you on a personal walk around the exhibition. From city council to Erlangen’s locals, all kinds of residents have given tours here. In this case, it’s less about the knowledge about art history, but rather their own occupational and cultural background. Every visitor has their very own view on the displayed artwork, spontaneous associations, or brought back memories. Exchange views and experiences with others and stay excited for our next residents’ tour guide!

Length: 60 minutes

The dialog with our visitors is the focus here.
