Cobra Museum Workshops

Cobra Museum is offering tailormade workshops for children (birthday parties), families and adults on request


Workshop “My Paint Tube is a Rocket”

In this workshop, young people learn about the art of Karel Appel, music and the connection between painting and music. Furthermore, the participants learn to ‘paint with sounds’, as Appel summarized it in 1961. Appel’s works seem to ’emerge’, comparable with sessions of Jazz musicians who play ‘in the moment’. The participants learn to paint spontaneously on their own brought music, which inspires them to paint sounds.

Practical information:

Costs: € 12.50 per student, including all materials, excluding € 5,55 entrance fee (free for Museum card holders)

Group: a minimum of 10, a maximum of 20 participants per workshop teacher

Karel Appel, Musique Barbare

CoBrA workshops for adults upon request

Participants become familiar with CoBrA artists like Karel Appel and Asger Jorn, and other modern artists such as Jean Dubuffet. Be inspired by works of art in the Cobra Museum’s permanent collection. The artists of the CoBrA movement were guided by the material with which they worked, by the spontaneity and unpredictability of it. This is how we will also work in this workshop. What story or theme does a particular work of art tell you? The ultimate result will be a personal work of art!

You can choose from the following workshops:

  • Experimental painting. Don’t think, do!
  • Clay Masters. Lose yourself in clay and sculpt your way to an object!
