Children and Families

The programme the Museo offers to families is based on the search for multiple access routes, both sensory and intellectual, in order to delve deeper into the artworks. In the activities for children and adults diverse artistic languages such as music, dance, circus, film and performance arts openly and conceptually enter into dialogue with the Museo’s Collection. This focus facilitates a link to its content, where emotion and humour play a prominent role and tap into the performance potential contained in numerous contemporary artworks.

The Museo offers long-term programmes every weekend; temporary programmes, for instance the animation film series Museocinema, and one-offs, such as those designed for International Museum Day. In all instances, besides exploring diverse ways of perceiving and interacting with the artworks, the activities for families aim to encourage intergenerational encounters and dialogue between the groups of children and adults participating.

One of the main aims of art education is to stimulate creative skills in childhood. Therefore, the programme of summer workshops meets this objective to offer children the chance to spend time with a young artist and develop a creative project alongside him or her. In this case the artist receives training which will enable them to gain awareness of the educational potential of their own work and also improve their communication skills.

In short, creativity is the cornerstone of the Museo’s programme for families and children. The creative approach to the content in the works, participation in creative projects and collaborations with artists form the main line of work in this field.
