Guided Tours & Workshops for Young People Ages 10–14

The ALBERTINA Museum offers entertaining, age-appropriate participatory tours. Materials to touch are on hand to help explain artistic techniques and create a connection with our young participants’ own worlds. In the studio workshops, we put what we’ve seen and learned into practice. We paint, draw, build, or sketch depending on the theme and workshop duration.



The jubilee exhibition to celebrate what would have been the 100th birthday of Roy Lichtenstein, one of pop art’s most famous representatives, show works from all of his creative phases done in various techniques. In this interactive tour, we investigate the Roy Lichtenstein phenomenon—retracing his creative phases and discovering paintings, sculptures, wall hangings, and comics.

In the 30-minute workshop, we create graphic works that reflect Lichtenstein’s penchant for patterns and for depicting things with a flat appearance. The 60-minute studio project aims to produce prints that emulate the artist’s famous use of Ben Day dots.

The works created at the studio can be taken along right after the workshop. Please bring along a bag (max. A3-format) in which to transport these works.


brings together the most beautiful works of classical modernism. In age-appropriate and richly varied ways, we investigate that era’s most famous artists together with the participating students. These tours each last one hour and can be booked on their own or in combination with a 30- or 60-minute workshop.

Choose from the following themes:

Monet to Picasso
An overview of classical modernism’s most important features in one guided tour! This tour lasts one hour and can be combined with a workshop (30 or 60 minutes).

We retrace the transformation of portraiture that took place between impressionism and cubism.
In the 30-minute workshop, students produce self-portraits on hand mirrors. In the 60-minute workshop, they develop these self-portraits into cubist works.

Still Lifes
We use the exhibited still lifes to take a closer look at classical modernist trends. The 30-minute workshop has us arrange still lifes and draw them. In the 60-minute workshop, we realize our still lifes with paintbrushes and gouache.

The landscapes we view here reveal to us the essential features of impressionism, expressionism, and cubism. In the 30-minute workshop, students create landscapes of their own. In the 60-minute workshop, they go on to translate these landscapes into different styles.

The focus in this tour variant is on the Batliner Collection’s three-dimensional objects. In the 30-minute workshop, we create sculptures using clay. In the 60-minute workshop, we carve sculptures out of polystyrene blocks.

Artists on the Run
This tour gives students an opportunity to engage with the topics of migration and displacement in light of the biographies and works of Chagall, Magritte, and Picasso. In the 30-minute studio workshop, our young participants face the challenge of having to set out on new creative paths as artists. What to do when one’s accustomed motifs are no longer accessible or when familiar working materials can’t be had? In the 60-minute workshop, we use the additional time to reflect on this as a group.

Writing Workshop
We take inspiration here from the collection’s masterpieces to write stories, poems, or free-form texts, experimenting with narrative perspectives while giving grammar and spelling concerns a break. We author our texts directly in the exhibition hall. This writing workshop lasts either 90 or 120 minutes.

Addressing Conflicts with Art
Conflicts are difficult—but also important in developing our own personalities and attitudes. Here, we combine appreciation of art with strategies for respectful communication. The 30-minute workshop sees us analyze group dynamics and practice esteeming interaction while creating an artwork as a group. The 60-minute workshop gives us additional time to practice and repeat.

Monet to Picasso - Online
Via Zoom, the art educator connects to your class at the agreed-upon time and brings the masterpieces of the exhibition Monet to Picasso to the classroom projector screen.

Duration: 50 min | Online Fee

EUR 65


In this program, we apply the method of queer reading to artworks of classical modernism. What’s typically masculine? What’s typically feminine? And is there an in-between? In the 30-minute workshop, we create self-portraits as painterly reflections on the essence of our own identities. In the 60-minute workshop, we add to these portraits by collaging materials taken from periodicals.
