Young People’s Art School

Since 2009, the Ministry of Science, Further Training and Culture of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate has been supporting the Kunsthalle Mainz’s Young People’s Art School. Nearly all of the art education programmes benefit from this subsidised programme entitled "Green Tower / Art Power".

Art Accessible to All

Sparda-Bank Südwest eG's foundation for art, culture and social issues supports Kunsthalle Mainz's art education programmes: School classes and other groups of children between 3 and 18 years can attend the art education programmes for free.

Art up close – Feldbergschule Mainz

Under the title Kunst ganz nah – art up close – the Feldbergschule elementary school in Mainz, the school socialwork office and Kunsthalle Mainz entered into a local alliance in August 2013. The project is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The project aims to turn Kunsthalle Mainz into somewhere a stone’s throw away from the Feldbergschule that offers the school’s pupils an open and inviting experiential setting. The role of the socialwork department is to ensure the involvement of ‘educationally disadvantaged’ children.

Readings – Otto-Schott-Gymnasium Mainz Gonsenheim

As part of a project initiated by German teacher Susanne Böswald, pupils regularly write texts in response to works of contemporary art on display at Kunsthalle Mainz. They write their texts directly in front of the artworks and then reflect on them in class. Each project concludes with a public reading at Kunsthalle Mainz.


Cooperation with Gutenberg-Gymnasium in Mainz

From the 2017/18 school year onwards, art classes from the Gutenberg-Gymnasium will be regular visitors at Kunsthalle Mainz. The Gutenberg-Gymnasium is a grammar school with a special emphasis on cultural education. Accompanied by members of the Kunsthalle educational team, the workshops will focus on exploring the exhibitions currently on show. Short presentations will take an interdisciplinary approach to aesthetic ideas, while also respecting the students’ own social surroundings.
