Art Education

The Kun­sthaus Lan­gen­thal invites vis­i­tors to engage with the exhi­bi­tions in a vari­ety of ways. The edu­ca­tional offers open up excit­ing approaches to art and cur­rent topics of the present and are addressed to chil­dren, school classes and adults.

One focus of the Kun­sthaus is on dig­i­tal edu­ca­tion projects for school classes in work­shops on topics such as pro­gram­ming, ani­mated film or sound design.


On request we offer tailer-made offers for your event or you can rent the facil­i­ties of the Kunsthaus.

Schools and Groups

Intro­duc­tory ses­sions for teachers

Each exhi­bi­tion is accom­pa­nied by an intro­duc­tory ses­sion for teach­ers that offers infor­ma­tion about the exhi­bi­tion as well as sug­ges­tions for class visits.

Dates: Tues­day before each exhi­bi­tion open­ing, 17:30–18:30.

Entrance: free


In the group work­shop, we pro­vide an age-appro­pri­ate and inter­ac­tive expe­ri­ence of the cur­rent exhi­bi­tion. In the prac­ti­cal seg­ment, par­tic­i­pants engage hands-on and delve into a cre­ative endeavor. The exhi­bi­tions often address con­tem­po­rary topics, making them suit­able as inter­dis­ci­pli­nary extracur­ric­u­lar learn­ing spaces. In this con­text, we align with the com­pe­tency objec­tives of Cur­ricu­lum 21 through encoun­ters with orig­i­nal art­works (BG 3.A.1).

Dura­tion: 1 ½ – 3 hours
Cost: CHF 150.– / 1 ½ hours
CHF 190.– / 2 hours
CHF 280.– / 3 hours
max. 25 participants

Pos­si­ble even during exhi­bi­tion remod­el­ing and out­side open­ing hours.

Cre­ative Work­shop I:
With brush, scis­sors, glue

Whether with a brush, scis­sors, scratch­board, or mod­el­ing clay – aligned with the respec­tive exhi­bi­tion, par­tic­i­pants of this work­shop create a cre­ative piece using tra­di­tional tech­niques and expe­ri­ence a sen­sory explo­ration of themes from the guided tour.

Age: Cycle 1 to adults

Cre­ative Work­shop II:
Video, Pho­tog­ra­phy, Cartoon

Press­ing the record button is easy. How­ever, the goal of this work­shop is to learn more about the tech­niques involved and to con­tem­plate our media con­sump­tion. The out­come will relate to themes of the exhi­bi­tion and can encom­pass audio, pho­tog­ra­phy, video, and car­toons based on mutual agree­ment. Cre­at­ing these orig­i­nal media con­tri­bu­tions is an ideal inte­gra­tion of the Cur­ricu­lum 21 Art and Design (2.C.1) with the com­pe­tency goals of Media and Infor­mat­ics (MI 1.3).

Age: 5th grade to adults.

Cre­ative Work­shop III:

We use com­puter pro­grams every day, but what’s the prin­ci­ple behind them? The visual pro­gram­ming lan­guage Scratch pro­vides an entry point and allows you to create inter­ac­tive sto­ries, ani­ma­tions, and games. Option­ally, we expand the tech­nique with the Makey­Makey board, which turns even bananas or stair steps into tac­tile inter­faces. In this work­shop, we con­nect exhi­bi­tion themes with the curriculum’s demand for under­stand­ing and repro­duc­ing the under­ly­ing tech­nolo­gies and con­cepts of infor­mat­ics (MI 2.2).

Age: 5th grade to adults.
