Intensive art school for youth (10-14 years) in the gallery
Maribor Art Gallery, Strossmayerjeva 6 and other locations
April - May 2018

The young experts UGM program is designed for children with interest in fine arts who wish to evolve and upgrade their talents and abilities. The program enables a direct contact with quality artwork pieces, getting to know UGM professional staff, meeting artists in their creative environment, different art techniques demonstrations and trying them out. The program encourages active observation and the development of critical thinking. Through visiting art exhibitions and a thorough dialogue with the mentors children will gain and obtain skills in the field of art creation (classic drawing, graphics, video, performance, multimedia), public performance and working in groups. The interpretation of art pieces will take place along with conversations about personal experiences and perspectives of happenings around the world.

Enrolment in the program will be possible until the fulfilment of vacancies - maximum of 12 children. This will allow an in-depth dialogue to form between the mentors and the children. The program will end with a public event in which we will present the results of the program and give the participants the opportunity to publicly perform.

The young experts UGM program in the year 2018 will take place during the 4 April and 30 May 2018. The program is led by Brigita Strnad, UGM senior curator, along with other UGM curators and artists. Vacancies are limited, so hurry up! The program will be implemented in case of at least ten applications.

Price for the whole program: 55 EUR (price includes professional guidance, materials and an excursion)
