Experimental encounter with art
Workshops at the Fondation Beyeler begin with a guided tour of the exhibition in which the participants are invited to participate actively. Afterward, what was seen and experienced is explored in-depth, hands-on. Various art techniques and practices are used in a playful manner to better understand the artists and artistic movements and trends. No prior knowledge or artistic talent is necessary.
The workshops for children aged 6 to 10 years old emphasize experimentation with artistic techniques.
For anyone interested in experimental formats. The Youth Studio combines dialogue-based tours with workshop visits.
Workshops for adults
After a guided tour of the exhibition, the workshop for adults provides the opportunity to deepen the experience through practical application.
Be inspired by the current exhibitions and become an artist yourself. Once a month, a drawing class allows art enthusiasts to approach selected works at the Fondation Beyeler through drawing. Depending on the focus (landscape, abstract painting, portrait or sculpture), various drawing techniques and tools are used to (re)discover the original works in a new light.
The Fondation Beyeler offers groups the option of a private workshop (following a tour of the exhibition). It is also offered outside of opening hours and in various languages.
