Projects in context to the federal state NRW program "Kultur und Schule”    


„From a stumbling a growing movement chain“ - concept and realization of an artistic education project, promoted by the government of the federal state NRW and the city of Düsseldorf. Within this project, children and also their teachers got the task to construct a ‚movement chain’. Out of various everyday objects, they built a chain in which a single impulse would start ‚moving’ and one object gets in touch with another one – like a domino effect.


„The wonderful world of color", Concept and realization of an artistic education project corresponding the subject “colours" in cooperation with one primary school and three day cares in Düsseldorf, Germany. For that project, the KREO team worked with school kids and kindergartners in a joined group, making them experiment with colours in a ‚laboratory’. That way, the kids learn and experience among others what happens when different colours merge. This project is promoted by the government of the federal state NRW.


„When the centipede was looking for his shoes..." Concept and realization of an artistic education project corresponding the subject „children make books“, called „BuchKinder“. Primary school children write their own little stories amd make linocuts according to these stories and then print everything. In the end, they produce their own books by themselves.
