Education

The educational programmes of Tallinn Art Hall value contemporary art and make its rich world or different layers of meaning easy to understand and exciting for everyone. We adapt our educational and audience programmes for all age groups, from young children to seniors, and conduct them in Estonian, Russian and English – also as language immersion sessions, if preferred. The educational programmes of Tallinn Art Hall are completed in cooperation with Sally Stuudio art school.

Interpretation Celebration

We adapt to all age groups from toddlers to seniors.

Subject: Various possibilities of experiencing and interpreting artworks

Arts vocabulary: printmaking, painting, photography, video, sculpture, installation and various art techniques represented in the exhibition

Duration 60-90 minutes, depending on the wishes of the group

 
Spring Exhibition brings us an abundance of ideas and techniques. This allows us to experiment with different ways of interpreting artworks, from theoretic to playful meaning making. Through creating personal connections with the artists, we aim to encourage students to explore art galleries independently. We use the VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) method, which improves critical thinking skills through teacher-facilitated discussions of visual images. We challenge ourselves: in how many different ways can we experience art? We will stand really close to the artwork and then view it from afar. We will have our eyes wide open and squinting. What happens when we look at it only for a few seconds? What changes when we immerse ourselves in it for longer?


We will give voice to the artworks by letting them move us. Practical creative assignment: participants can recreate their favorite artwork in their chosen medium – as a dance or a poem, through sound or drawing.

 

NB! Also suitable for playful adults.
