The project KUNSTTALENTE (meaning “artistic talents”) supports aesthetically gifted young people aged between 14 and 16 in their development for a period of one year. With the guidance of art education specialists, weekly courses offer them the chance to pursue their own artistic creativity. Here, the development of aesthetic concepts plays just as important a role as the exploration of different materials and techniques. As in an academy of art, the participants are given individual support and are largely able to freely pursue and study their interests and specific forms of expression. They learn what art is and what it can be, and discover a variety of possibilities for expression.

The project is made possible thanks to support from the GIERSCH FOUNDATION and is part of the joint educational program of the SCHIRN, the Städel and the Liebieghaus.
