Art Envoys

Schoolchildren communicate art

Here, pupils from Year 10 upwards can engage with art in a practical, intense way. In the annual project Art Envoys they get to know the works of art of their choice in detail. At the same time, they try out methods with which they can pass on this knowledge to interested visitors, friends and family on Siegen's KUNSTtag (Art Day).

In the respective working groups, a total of 20 pupils between the ages of 16 and 18 develop a guided tour featuring their favourite painting. It is not just the content that counts, however, as a public presentation in front of strangers also poses definite challenges to the students. The participants are not only allowed to spend intensive time in the museum face to face with the originals; they also get to know the institution “backstage“ with a guided tour behind the scenes.

Siegen’s KUNSTtag (Art Day) is a project with many participants from the arts and cultural field of Siegen which takes place once a year at the beginning of May. If you are interested in the project Art Envoys in the context of a school project week or similar, please get in touch with us.
