Programmes for junior and secondary education

Drawing Centre Diepenheim believes that creative research is central to art education in a contemporary art institution. Our varied programmes for primary and secondary schools encourage students to take a sensory approach to exploring, discovering and experiencing art. Students learn about art together by sharing their thoughts and experiences, and talking about what they’ve seen. Through hands-on making, they engage with art as practitioners. Self-expression, experiencing and reflecting go hand in hand.

Art Experience Course

Drawing Centre Diepenheim offers the annual Art Appreciation course, in partnership with art historian Erik Lips. The course offers an engaging, accessible introduction to the broad concept of art. Five associative themes form the starting point for introductions and discussions about art in its broadest sense, from drawing to photography and from architecture to games. Lips connects the themes to the rich history of the Drawing Centre and its predecessors and places them in a broader context.
