A workshop for everyone interested in lettering design. Together we will explore Museum Brandhorst and draw a typeface.


We will look for shapes in the museum building and in the exhibited artworks, try out the artists’ working methods, and draw letters and symbols. In the process, we always add something of ourselves, for example, a mood. Completely different signs and symbols will emerge that are linked to both the museum and its visitors, and together they will create a new typeface.


The workshop will be run by graphic designer and illustrator Carla Nagel. She has worked for many years for museums and book publishers, among others, as well as in the field of science education. For Museum Brandhorst she has designed several art expeditions for children and the ActioncARTs. In addition, she realizes free artistic projects.





The Kids’ Factory is an offer for you kids. Every Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. you can get creative there according to your mood. Changing techniques and themes entice you to take part in varied and age-appropriate artistic activities. Whether drawing, painting, using different printing techniques or dancing, whether analog, digital or hybrid—we will take you into the world of colors and shapes and appeal to your imagination and creative spirit. Please bring your parents along to accompany you. You can join in at any time.





You’ll find many more programs for children and families at the museum, as well as fun creative projects to do at home, in our digital creative lab: Factory.
