Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata is delighted to be back with the fourth edition of Arts For Juniors. In a series of different and exciting activities, children and teenagers (9-12 as well as 13+ years old) can get in touch with, discover and explore the world of art, music and books. These sessions are not designed to ‘teach an art form’. Rather, they introduce children and young people to various artists and authors, let them share their ideas, spark their imagination, and encourage participants to explore their own creativity.

Till further notice, the sessions will be presented online. All you have to do is sign-up for the session by sending an e-mail to You will then soon receive a link and instructions on how to take part in the session.
