Creating art through an experimental, imaginative and spontaneous way
CoBrA marked a new beginning for modern art in the Netherlands. The artists in the group were inspired by their predecessors, the great masters of modern art: Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and Paul Klee, but they were mainly inspired by the creativity they saw in children, by folk art and by non-western art. They created their art in an experimental, highly imaginative and spontaneous way.
The Cobra Museum offers guided tours to all classes and levels of secondary education. Our experienced museum instructors accompany the children through the museum. They view the works from the CoBrA collection and/or a temporary exhibition together. Through dialogue with each other and the museum instructor, the students delve deeper into modern art and discover what inspired modern, and especially CoBrA, artists. A visit can be a nice starting point for further study at school.
The Cobra Museum also offers surprising, customised programmes in addition to the regular guided tours. The students’ creativity and analytical abilities are further challenged here. During the Cobra College Tour, they delve deeper into the world of Cobra. They get the chance to take on the role of researcher, journalist and curator. The Cobra Museum also provides various workshops in which the students can create things themselves.
