Gal's Club

Gal's Club members discover and experience the works of art in the gallery that serve as an inspiration for our creative workshop. The exploration is fun and educative at the same time and the children get to know their peers who are connected by similar interests and a desire to be creative.

The children are divided into five groups. Freshmen start to get to know the gallery and works of art, sophomores try to widen their knowledge and get to know how the gallery functions. Juniors are in an advanced group and deepen the knowledge about the works of art since the emphasis is on individual artists and their works. Seniors are in a group that was established because of demand by the parents and in it children get to know the meaning of animals, plants and colours in art. Advanced class is meant for children who have participated in the Gal's Club for at least two years. In the class, children discover and explore connections and parallels between art styles and different artefacts.

There are nine monthly sessions, taking place from October to June, from 4pm to 6pm:

  • Juniors: first Tuesday in a month
  • Sophmores: first Thursday in a month
  • Juniors: second Tuesday in a month
  • Seniors: third Tuesday in a month
  • Advanced class: forth Tuesday in a month

The sessions are led by museum educators Kristina Preininger and Nataša Braunsberger, Academic painters Tanja Milharčič and Teja Vučko, dance educator Mojca Leben and gallery docents Jaka Racman and Tjaša Debeljak.
