Chits in the gallery

Chits in the gallery

 /  Bethlen's house

The adventure program for the youngest Chits in the gallery, which we started in the summer in the garden of the Villa of Dominik Skutecký, will continue also during autumn in the historical building of the Central Slovak Gallery in Dolná 8.

The autumnal Chits start on October 8, 2019 and the project will continue until March 2020.

This time, there are really diverse creative games connected with drawing, gluing, tearing, modeling or cutting prepared for the chits. We will play with the colours, shapes, lines, blots or dots that artists often use in paintings. We will build on the ongoing educational exhibition How to See Art… 2 (Landscape and Nature) to explore what is in nature, how it changes during the seasons, who lives in it, how to care for it to make it more beautiful and healthier. By touch, smell, hearing and sight, we get to know the things and environment around us. Children will be able to develop fine motor skills, art skills, creativity, concentration and self-expression.

The program is led by gallery pedagogues and we plan to revive it with movement and music workshops with professional external lecturers.

We will meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9.30 – 10.15. in the gallery at Dolná 8 (Bethlen’s House) in Banská Bystrica. There will be one topic every week, so on Tuesday and Wednesday we will do the same activities.

(The exception will be two weeks in October, when on selected Tuesdays, October 15th and 22nd, 2019 will deal with one topic and on selected Wednesdays, October 16th and 23rd, 2019 will deal with the second topic – with an external lecturer).

We decided to organize two groups per week, so that there will be max. 10 children. Therefore, please register at least 3 days in advance for each date at [email protected] or 048/470 16 24. Admission fee for 1 child accompanied by an adult will be as before, e.g. 2, – euros.


Looking forward to your visit!
