Summer holiday workshop

Artists forever!

Is artistic talent heritable? Can you learn art? The summer exhibition of the Mittelrhein-Museum is dedicated to the artist family Zick, which framed important artists over five generations. Some painted frescoes with Greek gods, others painted animals. Some worked for archbishops and electors, others illustrated books for small amounts of money. For a week we’ll try painting, crafting and many other different techniques to create a little exhibition showing the resulting artwork, which will be presented in the museum for two weeks.
