This year we again offer schools and grammar schools the opportunity to visit the Villa Tugendhat for a guided tour whose contents and presentation takes into account the visitors’ age.
During these educational programmes, pupils and students are led by object-focused learning to critical thinking and to the inclusion of the Villa Tugendhat and its creator in domestic and international cultural contexts. The instructor tries to present this significant work of architecture to pupils and students from different perspectives, depending on the particular type of programme selected by their teacher in advance.
The author of educational programmes and their implementer is Mgr. Alice Stuchlíková, Ph.D.
The programmes are designed for school groups and the capacity is therefore adapted to the number of students in one class.
The programme can be downloaded here.
You can download a poster for the event here.
