Art for children in Munich - our varied programme

Why art with children in workshops Munich?

Albert Einstein already said: "Creativity is intelligence that is fun".

Children are super creative by nature. Their view of the world is not yet so limited and they perceive many things that adults no longer see. When children participate in courses like the Workshops of the KUNSTLABOR 2 make art themselves, they can give free rein to their imagination. Painting, crafting, drawing and spraying encourages their visual thinking and the ability to find alternative solutions and to look at situations from different angles.

Through artistic creation, pent-up emotions can be processed, it brings peace to the mind. It is not for nothing that art is used as a form of therapy. Art also promotes self-esteem and self-confidence. In joint creative courses and workshops, the children and young people get to know other children. This is how new friendships can develop.
