Course description

The Kidsclub at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) welcomes children from primary school classes 7 and 8 (ages 10 to 12 years old), who are interested in developing their artistic expression but are given limited opportunities within their own school curriculum.

By attending the Kidsclub and completing the assignments, children will be able to develop their skills and experience and start building up a portfolio, required for admission to one of our preparatory courses.

Attendance and costs

The Kidsclub classes are held at the KABK every Friday afternoon from 16.30 to 18.00. Classes are organised on the basis of an open admission structure, which means that you can choose to attend only once, every week or every other week. Attendance costs €37.50 for 5 sessions (€7.50 per session) which includes materials, drinks and a treat. This five-session card is available to buy at the reception desk (PIN payment only).

If your child is interested in attending the Kidsclub, please contact the coordinator at It is only possible to attend the classes after receiving confirmation from the Kidsclub coordinator.


We try to use a different material in each class. For example, during a six-month period, we use paint, paper, clay, charcoal, wire, plaster, fabric, ink, sheets, potatoes, etching pens, etching paper, an etching press, wood, plastic bags and more. First-time participants receive a letter containing an overview of which materials will be used in which weeks.

Material costs are included in the course fee. You are not expected to buy any materials but you can always bring any materials from home that you would like to use.


All works created at the Kidsclub are displayed during the Kidsclub exhibition, held at the end of each term (one in December and one in June). These exhibitions are open to the public.

For the upcoming school year, the Kidsclub exhibitions will be held on

  • Friday 11 December 2020, 17.30-18.30
  • Friday 4 June 2021, 17.30-18.30
