MY ART ADVENTURE
DISCOVERING EUROPE THROUGH WORKS OF ART
October 2019 – May 2020
With the aim of bringing art heritage and museum itself closer to the youngest audience and developing their positive attitude towards art, museums and cultural heritage, educational programmes for children are conducted in the Gallery of Matica srpska for more than a decade.
In October 2019, the Gallery started a new season of the educational programme ″My Art Adventure. Discover Europe through Works of Art″, for children from the age of 5 to 11. In cooperation with the Preschool institution ″Radosno detinjstvo″ children from kindergarten come to the Gallery in organized groups and, together with museum educators, discover artworks of Serbian artist that traveled through Europe and recorded their impressions on canvas and paper. At the end of the school year, in June 2020, the Gallery traditionally organizes the exhibition of children’s works done after the program.
Moreover, in cooperation with the Center for Foreign Languages SOHO and the French Institute in Serbia – Novi Sad, and with the support of the City Council for Culture, the educational programme ″My Art Adventure″ is adapted to children who learn English or French language. By using a children booklet in English or French, children have an opportunity to explore stories about the travels of Serbian artists, observing at the same time the artworks in the Gallery’s Collection. Discovering cultural heritage of Serbia, France and Britain, they broaden their vocabulary with new words in foreign language that are not usually learned in language classes. The program is designed for children from Primary schools as well as for Language school pupils.
From October 2019, every Saturday between 11.00 a.m. and 12.30 p.m. the Gallery of Matica srpska organizes creative workshops for children in which participants get more familiar with stories of European cultural heritage or with topics of ongoing exhibitions in the Gallery.
The whole educative programme is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia and the City Council for Culture, Novi Sad.For more information about the program, please contact Jelena Ognjanović on 021 4899 018 or 069 1103 051, or by e-mail email@example.com
