Kids Day at at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection (Venice)

Venice for families

Are you in Venice with your family? Is it raining or are you tired of walking and walking around? “Kids Days” could be an opportunity to spend some hours entirely dedicated to art.

Every Sunday your kids (aged 4-10) can take a tour of the collection and afterwards have practical workshops focused on what they saw during the tour. This is the March program:

Sunday, May 2, 3 p.m.
Magical Opposites in the manner of Magritte

From Tradition to Experiment: Discovering Watercolor

Sunday, May 16, 3 p.m.
Passion for Design!
Starting from a brief analysis of the history of design, kids will have the chance of planning and constructing models of furnishing objects. This will give them the possibility to reflect on the aesthetic, function and characteristics of commonly used objects, thanks to a visit to see the works of art in the exhibition Utopia Matters: From Brotherhood to Bauhaus.

Sunday, May 23, 3 p.m.
Learning English through art: Dripping
This is the second workshop dedicated to Art and English. The vocabulary they learn will be that of the practical art workshop, this month focused on Pollock’s dripping.

Art Posters
Thanks to the analysis of various examples present in the exhibition Utopia Matters. From Brotherhood to Bauhaus, kids will have the opportunity to look closely at the artistic world of graphic, posters and magazines, which were extremely widespread at the beginning of the 20th century. They were innovative and incisive ways of merging art and communication.
