Special education

Interactive museum tour with workshop

A discovery trail in the artist’s house and garden makes for an extra-special (first) encounter with art! A musical guided tour for curious children! The guide takes the young ‘experts’ around the museum and teaches them about Constant Permeke through his artworks. The children are encouraged to ask questions and thus to form their own opinions. Challenging tasks are the common thread running through this trail. And the cherry on the cake is a visual workshop in Studio Permeke’s cosy art studio!

In the workshop the pupils can choose between three and four different stations:

Charcoal palette, portrait?
We experiment with charcoal and go in search of Permeke’s expressive lines.
Panorama landscape
Permeke often painted the landscape around his house. We make a frame with our hands and bring a piece of the landscape to life with acrylic paint and a real palette knife!
Clay
Familiarise yourself with professional modelling techniques!
Printing techniques
The children learn an etching technique with a printing press, create a monotype, and thus bring their drawing to life in a different way.

When: you can book a museum tour with workshop from Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 12 noon or from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm
Duration: 2 hours
Price: 1.25 euros/ child
Number: max. 25 pupils/ guide

Would you like to bring 2 or more groups at the same time? We can devise a tailor-made schedule with rotating activities.

Fun tip? You can have a cosy picnic with your class in the museum garden!

Under the press

With this printmaking workshop, we explore the many themes that were central to Constant Permeke’s art. We graze amongst his subjects, looking at composition, light, colour, form, darkness, shadow, texture and details in his artworks in order to subsequently experiment in the workshop with our own printing technique. The pupils learn the technical skills relevant to graphics: they scratch, draw, polish, glue and print their artwork to life with Studio Permeke’s large etching press.

Choose from:
- Monotypes
- Dry needle on milk carton or plexi plate
- Collagraphy or collage print
