Welcome to Kunstpause e.V. NRW
professional art education for children of all ages!

The Idea of Kunstpause e.V.
We believe that the arts are much more than just fun "extra" activities for kids. Participation in the arts opens up children's worlds and minds, and offers them the skills they need for a bright future. And chances are, your kids are not getting enough art, in or out of school.

  • Has your kid/ teenager ever taken a DANCE class or learned the basics of choreography?
  • Does your kid/ teenager know how to play an INSTRUMENT or analyse a piece of music?
  • Has your kid/teenager ever acted in a PLAY or studied the motivation of a dramatic character?
  • When was the last time your kid/teenager went to a museum or talked about the origins of symbols in the SCULPTURE of various cultures?

A Little Art is Not Enough!
In recent years, art education for children and young people has encouragingly gained public attention. This does not change the fact that there's not enough art in schools or in our children's lives. Ask almost any parent, and they'll say that arts education is very important to their child's well being. Which makes it so surprising that the arts have been allowed to virtually disappear from our children's learning experiences.
Did You Know?

  • The arts teach kids to be more open, tolerant, improve self-expression and develop social skills.
  • The arts allow kids to express themselves creatively and increase ability to judge art.
  • The arts promote individuality, bolster self-confidence, and advance learning ability
  • The arts can help troubled youth, providing an alternative to delinquent behaviour and truancy while providing an improved attitude towards school, develop responsibility and better problem-solving skills.

Arts education is important enough to be taught in schools, but the sad truth is, your kids spend more time at the school-yard than in arts classes. Arts education helps kids do better.
