What is Art-Work?
Inside the Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery, the Vasarely Museum and the Hopp Ferenc Museum of East Asian Art respectively, we work with original artworks, the value of which are inestimable, their influence unparalleled. We open the eyes of our visitors to the new ways of learning with the help of lived experience, practices and art objects. Our set of instruments encompasses training and coaching tools, art therapy methods and experience-oriented museopedagogical components.
Our developmental credo
Development: our programs are individually tailored to the needs of our clients. By close cooperation and feedback, we provide a path for them in achieving their goals through the development of specific competences.
Lived experience: Our trainings are organized within the space of a museum, in close proximity to real art objects. The work conducted in this exclusive environment makes these trainings unique cultural experiences.
Art: Our programs enable our visitors to make these otherwise distant artefacts part of their own life story. We help them establishing a deep connection between human beings and picture and offer a unique perspective to the processes operating these connections.
How do we work?
Each of our programs starts with a thorough assessment of needs to enable an individualized work process adapted to the pace of our clients. For our clients, we select the artworks from a collection of 3000 pieces, in order to find the appropriate item for our clients to work with. Our programs are established in a way to form a bridge between the artworks and the participants. This way the programs are simultaneously focused on the human participants and the artworks respectively. The moment of enchantment and connection emerges: this way we provide a unique framework enabling a new perspective to the situation. We create the safe place and ease that is necessary for genuine conversations. We afford and love these situations. When there is a proper moment, we foster humor, and shed light on details that would remain unnoticed. This program displaces us from the mundane everyday and helps participants form a new connection to themselves, their needs and worldview. As groups there is the opportunity to discuss topics that would be difficult to tackle in everyday situations. We work with occasional as well as regular programs adapting to the needs of our clients.
