El Prado in Summer

//13/07/12
This year’s theme for El Prado in Summer is “the trip”. The programme, Traveller’s Spirit will develop the theme and give children aged between 6 and 13 the opportunity to enjoy the museum´s collections.

Over five days of gallery visits and workshops, children will explore different situations and events which can happen on a trip. The focus will be on learning and creating opportunities to discover remote places and meet new people. The activities will be based on paintings from 19th century artists such as Soralla and Fortuny and aim to aid the learning of concepts, while also emphasising the more fun and ludic aspects of art.

The programme will run from 1st July – 9th August, alternating weeks for groups of younger and older children. Further information can be found here on the museum’s web page.
