CAUTION: CONTENTS HOT! Accompanying programmes for schools


The accompanying programmes are based on a playful guided tour of the exhibition and subsequent artistic reflection in the art-studio of the Portheimka Glass Museum.


Touch and Imprint – Texture, Surface, Composition

Is it possible to interconnect glass with another material? Can you tell a material by touch? Can the exhibition leave its imprint on your memory as well as on paper?

During a playful tour of the exhibition and the subsequent artistic reflection, we will together try to find answers not only to the above-mentioned questions, but also to those that will immediately arise out of the situation within the exhibition premises. In the studio, we will explore combined graphics techniques such as letterpress printing (monotype) and collage print with emphasis on composition, texture and surface.


Urban Vibe

Is there anything like a forest in every city? How can it look like and what is it made of? Is it hidden somewhere in the exhibition? How would it look if we designed it?

In the first part of the programme, we will explore the exhibition and try to find the joint work of Vendulka Prchalová and Helena Todd, Urban Vibe. We will further develop this artistic installation in the studio, where we will become artists for a while and create a city forest based on our own imagination. We will work in pairs by, creating variations of the same shapes (based on a template or shapes printed on the foil) used by the artist in the exposition. Emphasis will be put on the play with lines and their variation, the reflection of the city in the form of fluorescent painting.



Can the usability of glass be combined with free art? Can glass be combined, in different forms and shapes, with other materials that have a different structure, surface and properties?

First, in the exhibition, we will study together the interconnection of various materials with glass in the artworks of Vendulka Prchalová and Helena Todd. In the second part, we will move to the studio where we will create artworks from an ordinary off-the-shelf glass by enhancing it with materials of our choice (leather, textile, plastic…). The glass surface can also be artistically decorated with glass-decorating techniques (grinding, drawing and painting).



A playful tour of the exhibition with a guide who, together with the children, will unveil the hidden meanings of the exhibits. During the tour, each pupil/student will have a printed guide to the exhibition which, through various didactic tasks (replenishment, searching, drawing…), will enhance their visual experience, keep the visitor’s attention and reveal hidden meanings.

Self-service guidebooks are also intended for children’s individual or school group tours.
