Primary Education

ARTtube offers great videos to use in art education. The videos on current exhibitions and the museum collections can be a nice preparation for a class visit to the museum. Take a look at the homepage or at the partner pages for the current selection of videos, or search by subject or artist.

Within this theme you'll find a selection of videos that are highly suitable to watch in the classroom with children up to 12 years. For instance, the videos about Matisse and Roy Lichtenstein in the series 'Between Kids and Art' by the Stedelijk Museum. Or the animated video about Pieter Bruegel’s famous artwork Tower of Babel by Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. An accessible way to make your students familiar with art and the museum.
