MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART YOUTH CLUB

Museum of Contemporary Art Youth Club was established within the project “Translocal: Museum as Toolbox” in June 2016, however it has outlived the project itself. Museum Of Contemporary Art Youth Club brings together a group of young people aged 15 to 25 years who are taught by the Museum of Contemporary Art's educators about contemporary art and culture, importance, role and work of the Museum. These young people are encouraged to actively participate in designing and implementing individual programs from various areas of museum activities. Club members are joined in their curiosity and interest in art, they engage in joint activities and discussions and talk about what the museum of the future should look like and how to make it an attractive and exciting destination for young people.

Some of the Club's activities include conversations with artists, round tables, guided tours and other activities designed by young people for young people. From a completely personal point of view, Club members choose a topic to be researched and discussed. They also try to encourage young and general public to join the discussion.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS

MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART - ART CLASS

In October 2018 we launched a year-round drawing and painting art education program titled MSU Art Class. This program focuses on various drawing and painting techniques, complemented by the study of artworks exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art. It also includes free visits to permanent and current exhibitions, as well as meetings with artists.

The art education program is divided into two semesters. The first semester began in October 2018 and will last until February 2019, and the second semester begins in February and ends in June 2019. Following each 60-hour semester course, the Museum of Contemporary Art will host an exhibition featuring the selection of the best participants' works.

The first semester is devoted to learning practical skills (drawing and painting), and the second semester to improving these skills, with an emphasis on finding one's own artistic expression. Participants can enrol only in the first part of the program, whereas the second semester can only be taken by the participants who have completed the first semester or those who demonstrate a sufficient level of practical knowledge and skills to follow the second part of the program beginning in February 2019.       

For more information and application please contact us via e-mail at edukacija@msu.hr.

By prior arrangement and according to individual visitors’ needs we will provide special guided tours in collaboration with external experts.
