Middle School | Focus on Sculpture

10–14 years

The exhibition Monet to Picasso presents the ALBERTINA Museum’s extensive holdings of classical modernist paintings and provides an outstanding overview of all the “-isms” to be found in 20th-century art history. This freshly redone public presentation of the permanent collection runs from Impressionism and Fauvism to German Expressionism and Bauhaus and on to the Russian avant-garde and Picasso.


Focus on Sculpture

This tour focuses on three-dimensional works in a variety of different artistic styles. The young participants investigate the artistic journey from two to three-dimensions while also getting a sense of the differences between additive and subtractive sculpture and learning about their respective methods of production.

The 30-minute studio workshop has participants work additively with clay. In the 60-minute workshop, they try out the opposite process, shaping an object from a block of foam.
