Mini Studio at the Jakopič Gallery

For all of our youngest and young visitors that are passionate about art and want to get creative, we prepared a creative corner filled with all possible accessories. In the Mini Studio of the Jakopič Gallery children (and children by heart) can let their imagination run wild, can try various art techniques and create their very own miniature masterpieces.

Mini Studio is a fun and approachable way of bringing children closer to various art techniques, from painting, sculpting to photography. It also encourages their creativity… while parents can perhaps enjoy a calm visit of the exhibition.

Mini Studio is available during all exhibitions and events at the Jakopič Gallery.
Suitable for children from 5 to 15 years.
