Young People’s Art School of Kunsthalle Mainz
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, from holiday programme to group offers, benefit from the Young People’s Art School of Kunsthalle Mainz.
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 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.
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.
The grammar school Frauenlob-Gymnasium has enjoyed an ongoing partnership with Kunsthalle Mainz since 2008. Art teacher Gitte Staegemann visits the temporary exhibitions with her classes, advanced courses and electives. The school students’ own works and exhibitions pick up on the themes and techniques of the professional artists. In the current exhibition class 6d will be working on a small project.
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.
Otto-Schott-Gymnasium in Mainz Gonsenheim
As part of a project initiated by Susanne Böswald-Franta and Esther Richthammer, 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.
