PinchukArtCentre invites 9-10 year olds to participate in a detective game “Art Detectives”

11 February 2014

The PinchukArtCentre launches a new series of educational activities entitled “Art Detectives” for children aged 9-10 years. This entertaining educational detective game has been developed by the PinchukArtCentre team with a view to introduce young art center visitors and their parents to the world of contemporary art, its famous representatives, works and ideas.

The educational art game that is taken home after the sessions in the art centre fosters closer ties between family members, it encourages parents to search for answers together with children, promoting mutual understanding between different generations.

The new course will consist of eleven classes that allow participants to better understand what a museum is and how it functions, what art is and how artists find ideas. Young researchers will be able to learn more about the personality of an artist and even try themselves in the role of an artist.

The course will include a theory part, a homework for the whole family and an artistic quest with children turning into art detectives.

On Saturday, February 15, 2014, at 14:30 the first “Art Detectives” session entitled “Museum: what's happening here?” will take place. The event participants will learn about the concept of a museum as an institution, its history and organization system. The event will take place on the 5th floor of the art center in the Educational room.
