Planned as an ongoing workshop program for children and young people aged between 6 and 19, individual course blocks offer participants a change to examine concepts, methods, media and techniques in fine art. The age-specific courses prompt the kids and young people to take a close look at the exhibitions at the SCHIRN, expand their own practical art skills and make an important contribution to their all-round character development. The themed units foster interest and courage in trying new things and prompt unconventional ways of thinking and expression. In German

SCHIRN STUDIO. ART STUDIO is made possible through support from the FRIENDS OF THE SCHIRN e.V., additional support by DWS Invest­ments and Deut­sche Vermö­gens­be­ra­tung AG


AGE 6–9

To the exhibition DIORAMA

Tuesday, 7, 14 + 21 November, 4–5.30 pm

We will be looking at works in the exhibition that challenge the viewer’s perception in spectacular ways by playing with light and shadow. Following this, there will be the opportunity to create our own art works by experimenting with peephole effects and translucent materials

Tuesday, 5, 12 + 19 DECEMBER, 4–5.30 pm

We will discover the natural history presentations of animal and human living environments together. The plurality of presentation formats can then serve as an inspiration in working on our own designs using different materials


AGE 9–12

To the exhibition DIORAMA

Wednesday, 8, 15 + 22 NOVEMBER, 4– 5.30 pm

What is a diorama? What role does light play in a polyorama? And why is the peephole effect so fascinating? We look behind the scenes of the individual forms of presentation before using the knowledge gained in our own art works

Wednesday, 6, 13 + 20 DECEMBER, 4– 5.30 pm

The course centers on staging objects in space. We will be creating foregrounds, midgrounds and backgrounds and placing the focus on two or three-dimensional objects


To the exhibition DIORAMA

THURSDAY, 9, 16, 23 + 30 NOVEMBER, 7 + 14 DECEMBER, 4–5.30 pm

Collecting, organizing and presenting are central tasks carried out by museums. In the exhibition, these are visualized in various dioramas. Inspired by the wide range of possibilities, we will find our own forms of presentation that link the two-dimensionality of painting with the three-dimensionality of objects


AGE 15–19

To the exhibition DIORAMA

Friday, 10, 17 + 24 NOVEMBER, 1, 8 + 15 DECEMBER, 5–7 pm

The works in the exhibition provide orientation and inspiration for us to visually engage with personally relevant topics. In creating individual works, participants can then employ the broad spectrum of materials available in the Schirn Studio and use diverse artistic techniques
