EDUCATION FOR SCHOOLS
With the intention of making the exhibition programme attractive for all ages, the Kunsthal continued to develop different education programmes. In 2018, we could offer education programmes to children of all school levels to accompany the exhibitions Hyperrealism Sculpture, Viktor&Rolf and Action<->Reaction. These programmes consisted of ‘Look & Do’ tours for primary schools and Viewer Guides for secondary schools. Also, the KunsthalLAB is especially equipped to acquaint students and regular visitors with the themes and techniques of the exhibitions. In collaboration with the SKVR there were guided tours of Action<->Reaction during which the students were shown the exhibition by art teachers and subsequently participated in intensive workshops.
The KunsthalLAB is our permanent education space where children and adults can actively participate through a combination of learning, entertainment and social interaction. The KunsthalLAB is intensively used during Cultuurtraject (Cultural Route) workshops and during school holidays. On Sunday afternoons there are free workshops that are linked to the exhibitions.
In order to inspire teachers and introduce them to the educational programmes, the Kunsthal organises two teacher’s afternoons a year. In the spring, teachers were able to exchange knowledge with their colleagues, visit the new exhibitions and become inspired by all the different interpretations of art education in the various schools.
In the autumn, we organised a teacher’s afternoon in collaboration with the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Het Nieuwe Instituut. The programme was kicked-off with a presentation by philosopher, educational pedagogue and researcher Piet van der Ploeg.
