Young Masters


It was under the motto Discover the Picasso in You that the Albertina invited children between 6 and 12 years of age to participate in its Master Classes in 2007, thus launching an art project that has been growing steadily and with great success since then.


For the first time in the history of the Albertina, the young masters were now be offered an opportunity to present their small and large works to a wider public in the museum itself.

The exhibition was shown a selection of 150 of the best works produced in the Albertina Master Classes in the last two years.


This first presentation offered a survey as manifold as the range of tasks tackled in the several-week courses: the young artists could test themselves on a variety of subjects spanning from the effect of colors, the representation of space, three-dimensional works, collages, pottery, photography, issues of style, motion studies, action painting, figure studies, overpaintings, and watercolors to music and painting, acrylics, still lifes, drawing, printing, and gold-plating.
