Creative workshop ‒ examples

Drawing in the museum

When sketching and drawing in front of the artworks your way of looking at art is honed and a variety of drawing techniques can be tried out and learned.

Painting workshop
Inspired by the paintings in the Sammlung Rau for UNICEF or artworks in our changing exhibitions, you can learn about different paints and painting techniques and try them out in abstract or representational pictures of your own.

Sculpture workshop
Starting from the three-dimensional artworks and sculptures of Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber-Arp, you will have the opportunity to try out different sculpture techniques and to work with clay, soap or wax as well as plaster, wood or stone.

Printing workshop
Produce printing stocks and do some printing yourself: in our printing workshop you can learn about and personally try out different printing techniques from frottage to stamping and from letterpress with Styrene, linoleum or wood to drypoint etching.

Writers' workshop
The poems of Hans Arp and the Dadaists, not to mention the wonderful stories around the Rhine and the romantic RhineValley, provide an inexhaustible source for your own sound poems, imaginative stories and travel reports.
