Can you imagine a world without colours? A world in black and white only? Let’s try to draw the world around us using only black and white, using the works of Victor Vasarely and Sam Cox, also known as Mr. Doodle, as inspiration. The goal is to experiment with various lines, shapes, and structures and create your own black-and-white world of illusion.

Under the guidance of A. Frajková, N. Kozáková, M. Pavlikánová

(For elementary and middle schoolers aged 6 – 14)



Can you imagine a world without colours? A world in black and white only? Let’s try to recreate it using the technique of blind drawing. This unique technique allows the children to express their memories. It also encourages creativity and expression without the visual aspect, enabling them to express their feelings and experiences through touch.

Under the guidance of A. Frajková, N. Kozáková, M. Pavlikánová

(For elementary and middle schoolers, aged 9 – 14)



Do you like magic and chemistry? If you do, you are invited to create your own kaleidoscope. It is a simple optical instrument that creates magic with the help of light and mirrors. It may be seen as a toy for kids and adults. Together with Lucia Dovalová, we will make a kaleidoscope – but not just any kaleidoscope, a polarised one using crystals.

Under the guidance of L. Dovalová

(For children aged 7 – 14)



Are colours important in life? Can we use colours to disguise and hide ourselves? Together, we will learn about the captivating world of colours and their meanings in nature, where some creatures disguise themselves or hide with the help of colours. This resemblance is called mimicry. You will discover how some animals use colours to survive, and we will learn why mimicry is essential.

Under the guidance of A. Frajková, A. Balogh, M. Pavlikánová

(For pre-schoolers, elementary and middle schoolers aged 5 – 12)



Through the tales of Heart in the Right Place and with the help of the children's magazine Slniečko, we will get to know Slovak authors who write about their birthplace. We will learn about them and their books that can be found in BIBIANA’s library.

Under the guidance of V. Trokšiarová, P. Stehelová, N. Kozáková.

(For elementary schoolers)
