Muse.Music.Museum Project Returns in September
There won't be long until autumn starts overwhelming us with cultural offers. But this autumn also marks the return of For Art's Sake Association, more enthusiastic than ever, with free creative education programmes, which are organized at 'George Enescu' National Museum on 141, Calea Victoriei, in Bucharest.
Therefore, the Muse.Music.Museum project comes back, in September, with the last series of programmes dedicated to children aged 2-6 and their parents. Just like in June and July, the family programmes are structured around two original themes: Near a bow, at a playful piano and Mister Do and Miss La. Both programmes are free for children and adults, but require a registration, that can be made starting with the first day of the week in which the meeting is programmed.
The idea of the project came out of the necessity to offer children programmes involving music, movement and musical instruments. The entire educational approach is centered around developing creativity, and the combination of several arts in the same workshop aims at the natural acquisition of the practices and values by the young children who, in the future, will approach culture in a natural, accessible and attractive way. Everything takes place under the guidance of specialists in museum education and creative dance and with the help of musicians who will perform and delight the audience with pieces of well-known works by George Enescu.
Theme 1: Near a bow, at a playful piano- programme dedicated to the children aged 2-3 and 4-6
Young children enjoy dance, music and movement. But what happens when there are also colourful scarves, instruments and fancy bow-ties involved in the equation? The result is a creativity exercise for both adults and children, who get to learn together about the attractions of the museum and the joy of little, but valuable things.
Theme 2: Mister Do and Miss La- programme dedicated to children aged 2-3 and 4-6
The programme starts with the presentation of Mister Do, who enjoys paintings and collects diplomas, photos and all sorts of objects which you will discover together with the organizers. Miss La is very pretty and elegant, as she looks very much like Maruca Cantacuzino, George Enescu's wife, one of the most elegant ladies of her time. The workshop consists of the organization of a small orchestra with the help of the children, who will be musical characters, and, if the weather allows it, Mister Do and Miss La will invite you to explore the palace's 'musical' garden.
We are waiting for you to attend the last series of these programmes, an interactive and educational visit, unforgettable both for children and for parents! You will enjoy moments full of joy, curiosity, music, dance, history, creativity…all of them dedicated to the entire family, and offered by the For Art's Sake Association and the 'George Enescu' Museum through the Muse.Music.Museum project, financed by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund.
