The art education department invites you to actively experience the exhibitions in the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum and in Haus Lange and Haus Esters: sensually, creatively, critically and dedicatedly.

The offerings available from the art education department are especially targeted to all visitors: families, children, adolescents, adults and people with disabilities. You are welcome to observe art, to consider and talk about art and even to work artistically yourself.

Visit the rooms of the art education department on the ground floor of the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, take active part in weekend workshops, at guided tours for families, at KunstImPuls events or at our various holiday offerings.

Studio 2

Studio 2 is an interactive platform at the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, whose projects alternate with the exhibitions.

In the Bauhaus Centenary year, Studio 2 will be accompanying the exhibition The ABC of Bauhaus. Children and adults can immerse themselves in the teachings of the Bauhaus in an experimental approach. The idea was to provide a comprehensive and all-encompassing education that bore the individual signature of the artists who taught there – such well-known names as Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee. One particular role was played by the preliminary course, which was initially run by von Itten and later by Josef Albers and László Moholy- Nagy. Studio 2 now features a number of “stations” at which visitors can study the material, form and color experiments of the Bauhaus teaching method and reproduce them practically and creatively themselves.
