Summer with DOXie

The swimming pool isn’t the only place you can take a break from school, nursery school, or work! Summer programmes at the DOX Centre are all about games and interactive encounters with contemporary art and architecture. This summer you can spend four Saturday afternoons with your children or grandchildren in a gallery environment surrounded by works of art, and accompanied by our instructors, enjoy creative family activities.

14 July | 2 - 5 p.m.

Breaking Light

A family art workshop for the CHIHULY – LIBENSKÝ – BRYCHTOVÁ exhibition

Light can reflect, refract, undulate, spread, penetrate, light up, or shine through something, and that’s just for a start. Without light there would be no life, and without life there would be no friendship – for example the friendship of famous glass artists whose work will inspire you during our first summer art workshop. You can look forward to a game with light and its friends: colour, shadow, glint, and glimmer. Summer likes light, and we’ll try to break it up.


28 July | 2 – 6 p.m.

DOXie’s Children’s Day

Open art workshops for the CHIHULY – LIBENSKÝ – BRYCHTOVÁ exhibition and the GULLIVER Airship

Several art workshops located throughout DOX will not only as always be connected by a contest in which everyone will have a chance to won, but given the current exhibition at DOX, above all by the topics of light, colour, and space. Various techniques and materials will be waiting for you at several locations – come and let yourself be inspired by world-class glass art, sustainable architecture, and all sorts of contemporary art!


11 August | 2 - 5 p.m.

Gulliver’s Travels into Fantasy

A family art workshop for the GULLIVER AIRSHIP

Our airship, designed by Martin Rajniš and Leoš Válka, is named after one of the most famous figures of utopian literature – and in this programme the literary Gulliver will whisk you away into his diary full of giants, midgets, and talking horses, and further yet. You will embark on an exploratory expedition through the DOX Centre; you will find out what the airship on the roof has in common with Gulliver, you will experience it from all sides, and will even take a little piece of it home. Your own diary will turn you into a little Gulliver.


25 August | 2 - 5 p.m.


A family art workshop for the CHIHULY – LIBENSKÝ – BRYCHTOVÁ exhibition

What do you think of when you hear the word “glass”? Fragility? Transparency? Light? Reflection? The glass on exhibit at the DOX Centre is all that and much, much more. Like our three legends of glass art, we will take a journey starting with initial enlightenment and inspiration, through design and choice of materials, until the final work of art. Come and shape!


Art workshops will be conducted by DOX Centre instructors.
