Art interactively for families
110 00 Prague 1
Entrance from the passageway.
Families with children as well as members of all other age groups, including senior citizens or visitors with special needs, are welcome to attend our Saturday art workshops. Held at various GHMP buildings, the workshops are designed with a close view to the form and content of a particular exhibition. One advantage for students and working people is that they are held on the weekend and you can come and go any time during the workshop hours (between 1 and 6 pm). All materials are provided by Prague City Gallery. The price is CZK 5 for children age 10 and younger, CZK 20 for all others. The workshops are usually held directly in the exhibition space, but many take place at GHMP’s art studios (education center, eco-studio). Families may also attend our regular Wednesday art courses at the education center (4–6 pm). Prague City Gallery’s activities for families with children have earned it the Family-Friendly Company Award.
GHMP’s education department operates an online database of worksheets, photographs, illustrations, and videos that are freely available for download. These are perfectly suited for teachers, who can use them during distance learning, and also for families who have to be at home with their children. But they can also be used freely as inspiration for all other target groups and age categories. The assignments and instructions can be modified and altered as needed (in terms of subject matter, content, time, and level of difficulty) and can be adapted to fit various age groups. The workshops can be done at home, using regularly available materials and equipment. They offer a wide range of subjects and areas of interest: photography, public sculpture, animated film, sculpture and text (František Bílek), architecture (the city), conceptual art, and more. The activities are inspired by the gallery’s buildings or on works from the its collections and exhibitions. These educational materials are being constantly expanded to include other areas of interest.
GHMP’s online educational materials also include two methodical handbooks from an international education project that can serve as a source of ideas and inspiration for art-related games and assignments.
