Foam: for kids

for kids

A visit to Foam offers everyone - young and old - a chance to dive into the art of photography. In addition to an extensive programme of workshopsevents and tours, Foam also offers its youngest visitors opportunities to interact directly with current exhibitions. 


With this colourful camera in their hands, kids are instantly morphed into masters of photography or ''FotoBaas''. The FotoBaas camera is especially designed for children ages 4 through 10 to learn more about photography concepts in a fun and playful way while visiting Foam's current exhibitions. The camera is accompanied by a playbook that guides participants through various techniques using simple exercises. 

Cost: € 3,50 including booklet
For Stadspashouders: € 1,50 including booklet

The FotoBaas is available at the front desk of the museum and cannot be booked in advance.

Remake: family workshop

Price: € 165 / 12 participants

How well do you know your family? Do you share the same view of the world or do you each have your own perspective? During the Remake Foam Family Workshop, you will find out just how similar or different your standpoints actually are. By looking at how professional photographers make visual choices, you will become more aware of your own views. The result of the workshop is a creative family portrait: a remake of work from the Foam Collection. After the workshop, you can take the portrait home with you and enjoy it for generations to come.
