A tour of the permanent collection Art in Slovenia.
– about 60 minutes
An overview tour for the primary and secondary school pupils is adapted to their age and curriculum. The tour takes pupils through all art styles from the Middle Ages to Slovene Early Modernism and introduces key Slovene artists and their works. Knowledge of art motifs is refreshed. Our primary concern is strong motivation of the pupils so that they observe and discuss the works of art. To insure better comprehension and experience of art, the guides use some methods of the modern museum pedagogue Janusz Byszewski and different didactic paraphernalia.
With prior notice the gallery can arrange tours that highlight a specific art styles and motifs; we can also arrange a viewing of films about a specific painter or artistic techniques.
