Guided visits for schools

The museum offers interactive guided tours for class groups from the third kindergarten class to the sixth grade, from the perspective of ‘looking at art and the art of looking’.

What happens in a museum? What can you see? We take a walk through the building and discover the exhibited artworks through fun to-do assignments. We focus on the basic ingredients of an art piece: form, colour, perspective, material, technique, composition…  Afterwards, we will take action ourselves in a creative workshop! The tour is always adapted to the current exhibitions, so both the permanent collection and the temporary projects can be presented.

Practical information: guided tour and workshop in museum: 1h30 to 2h

Price: € 5 per pupil (class of min. 15 and max. 25 pupils)

Possible on all days of the week between 10 am and 3 pm.
Picnic in the cafeteria, in the garden or in the orchard.
Combine your visit to the museum with a nature walk in the garden of Felix.

Creative workshops

The museum regularly organises creative workshops, on a Sunday afternoon. Work creatively with abstract forms or with the theme of the exhibition. An afternoon of arts and crafts, a great activity for young and old.

The workshops are announced on our activity calendar or on our facebook page.

To the museum with the whole family

With every exhibition in our museum, special attention is paid to our youngest visitors. We map out a special route for them, with assignments and extra material, so that they too can become inspired by the wonderful world of abstract art, which appeals to the imagination.

And so a visit to a museum becomes an experience for everyone.

Twice a year the museum organises a family day with creative workshops and activities in the museum and in the garden. Check the dates in our activity calendar.

 

Nature walk in the garden of Felix

An artistic tour can also be combined with a nature walk in the ecological domain of Felix De Boeck, redeveloped as part of a biodiversity project. And so we get to know the environment in which painter-farmer Felix lived: his old farm, the herb and vegetable gardens, the orchard and the 5-hectare surrounding nature reserve.

Practical information: nature tour with nature guide: 1h

Price: € 3 per pupil

Possible on all days of the week between 10 am and 3 pm.
Picnic in the cafeteria, in the garden or in the orchard.

FeliXart Museum

The common thread in the FeliXart Museum is ‘looking at art and the art of looking’. From this point of view, children learn to understand modern and contemporary visual art themselves. A museum visit thus becomes instructive and enjoyable, which is the key to success for every visit. That is why we also provide interactive assignments that are directly linked to experiencing art.

Each tour also responds to the children’s experience. Children can tell about certain works of art, ask questions, and learn new things for themselves. In this way, children give meaning to works of art out of their own curiosity and amazement.

FeliXeco - Ik FeliX, Wij FeliX, All FeliX

The FeliXart Museum occupies a specific position within the museum landscape in Flanders: art literally stands alongside heritage. A modern museum building dominates a domain of about 5 ha with the listed eighteenth-century farm of the painter-farmer, the herb and vegetable gardens, the protected orchard and the nature reserve The Swamp. It forms a green oasis in an urbanised environment. A unique setting for recreation and education, offering a surprising mix of nature, culture and heritage.

Since 2013, the FeliXeco nature domain offers green recreation space to local residents and visitors. Thanks to the clustering of fragmented green spaces, larger biotopes of fauna and flora have been made possible. The ambitious nature project was elaborated with an emphasis on biodiversity, correct management and the interconnection with the green environment.  This green oasis connects to the Green Walk of Brussels and forms a natural gateway to the Zenne Valley. Here you can walk, cycle, picnic, … In short, enjoy this piece of pure nature!

‘Ik FeliX, Wij FeliX, All FeliX’

The domain is still in full development and many plans and ideas that have been brooding on for a while are now being concretely implemented, together with the inhabitants of Drogenbos. Family gardens with workshops on ecological gardening, activities around Felix’s oven, cows in the orchard and other animals around the farm, an ecological playground close to the residential care centre to promote the intergenerational aspect… ‘Ik FeliX, Wij FeliX, All FeliX’, a project of and for the inhabitans of Drogenbos.

An initiative of FeliXart Museum, Municipality of Drogenbos, Regionaal Landschap Pajottenland-Zennevallei. With the support of the Province of Flemish Brabant and the Flemish Community.
