Laboratory of Contemporary Art: methodological manual on how to teach children and teenagers

Laboratory of Contemporary Art is a methodological manual on how to teach children and teenagers current art practices, as well as how to work with children’s audience in museums and galleries. The book tells about various mediums and topics: from curatorial work to anthropological research, from drawing and art therapy to photography and land art. A separate chapter is devoted to how the artistic approach can be used in talks with children about ecology.

The manual will be useful for teachers, parents, educational initiatives, employees of cultural institutions and anyone who wants to learn about contemporary art movements. The printed edition will contain an annex with interactive materials for classes with children. In addition, there will be a free electronic version in PDF format — so you can print the necessary exercises.
