The Educational Department welcomes visitors to the Museum of
Ancient Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Wiertz Museum and the
Meunier Museum. Its aim is to establish an active relationship between
the museum and its visitors, whether they are children, teenagers
or adults: whatever a visitor's age, a guided tour is a living dialogue
with the work of art.
The starting point for the discovery of the museum is based on
a theme chosen by the group leader. These This theme can give priority
to a purely plastic arts approach (form, colour, volume, etc.),
an approach based on observation (nature in art, the human body,
the five senses, the costume, etc...), opening horizons to imagination
(mythology, symbolism, surrealism, etc.) or alternatively, an initiation
to the history of art (a painting, a sculpture can be landmarks
in history). Without excluding the educational aspect, the creative
programme or the workshop are ways of developing the visitoršs creativity,
initiative and sensitivity.
