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.
Workshops for adults
After a guided tour of the exhibition, the workshop for adults provides the opportunity to deepen the experience through practical application.
Drawing at the Fondation Beyeler
Every 2nd Thursday of the month from 10am to 11am
Once a month, you can approach selected works at the Fondation Beyeler through drawing. Depending on the focus (landscape, abstract painting, portrait or sculpture), various drawing techniques, tools and methods are used to (re)discover the original works in a creative manner.
Drawing sessions alternate between our current exhibitions and the collection displays.
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.
