"Painting" - family painting area in the Old Guardhouse

We would like to welcome children and their caretakers to the family painting area in the Old Guardhouse. The place has been created for common experience of art – learning, stimulation of imagination, sensory perception of the painterly nature of the world, and simply for having fun.

The family painting area was inspired by one of Rembrandt van Rijn’s paintings – "The Polish Rider" from The Frick Collection in New York, exhibited at the Royal Łazienki Museum.

In the painting zone, everyone can find something for themselves. We have prepared a play area for the youngest, walls with collectibles to admire and touch, a corner for those looking for quiet and relaxation with poetry, music and art, a display designed for exhibitions of one’s own creations, a painter’s workshop and space for free painting on large areas.

Book a time, come and experience fun through art together with your child. Paint with a brush, a word, a thought.
