Save your Favorite Animal on Noah’s Ark!

We will be making animals destined for Noah’s Ark together. Which animal would you like to be there? The magic unicorn, the golden hamster, or the chilled out sloth? What does your favorite animal look like? Bright and colorful or sporting wings and a propeller on its head?

The workshop begins with exciting animal stories. First you choose your favorite animal and imagine you are in its world. You think about what’s special about your pet, imitate its call, hiss, or roar, and choose materials, colors, and tools to make a sculpture of your animal for your room.

The fall vacation camp offers a creative program with lots of active games during the breaks. In workshop groups of 10 children, the focus is on individual care. A final presentation for parents, friends, and guests concludes this action-packed week.
The program is led by the artists Janine Schweiger and Matthias Garff: Janine Schweiger is a dramaturge, theater pedagog, and narrator, and visual artist Matthias Garff creates animal sculptures from finds, which will be on show in the children’s museum (currently under construction).
