Gustav Klimt is one of the most famous Austrian painters of all time, and his particular technique makes his paintings truly unique.

Meet your experienced family-friendly art teacher in the comfort of a private, cozy little art atelier in the heart of Vienna. All you need to do is listen to the technical instructions and you’ll be painting like Klimt in no time.

Using a wide range of colors, the indispensable gold leaves and other fun material, the idea is to give a “Klimt touch” to a modern illustration or a photo and spend a great family-bonding moment. You can even decorate a little box using these techniques. Or you can choose to replicate one of Klimt’s famous paintings… It is up to you!

Each member of your family will leave the private workshop with their own Klimt-like creation.

Our Painting Like Klimt private hands-on workshop is the perfect follow-up to a visit of the Belvedere Palace.

Is this a private activity?
It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones in the art workshop, along with your private art teacher.
Do the parents participate?
Of course! Everyone will be creating theird own work of art. That is the fun part!
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
Although children aged 6 and older will get a better grasp of Klimt’s techniques, younger children are more than welcome to participate in this workshop and learn to paint like Klimt.
Can I paint something else than Klimt?
The idea of this workshop is to introduce you and your family to Gustav Klimt’s art and painting technique, as he is one of the most famous Austrian painters. But should you want to do something different, you are more than welcome to. At the end, creating a family-bonding moment where everyone enjoys themselves is what matters most.
Do I need to bring special material?
No! You don’t need to bring anything as all the material is prepared for you. However, if you have a small object that you would like to paint with Klimt as a source of inspiration, you can always come with it, and discuss it with your private art teacher.
Are we leaving the workshop with anything?
Of course, you will leave the workshop with your creations. We’ll make sure that these don’t become too bulky, so you can easily put them in your suitcase when coming back home.
Will my teenage kids like the activity?
If they like arts & crafts, they will love this hands-on activity. But if they don't enjoy artistic ventures, then we recommend checking out some of our other Vienna activities.
