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: the School for Young Talent or one of the four Art Plan Schools.

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.
