LEARNING

With a core belief in and the aim of establishing a museum in which everyone may enjoy encounters with art filled with a sense of wonder and discovery, the Yoku Moku Museum has been created, with the local community in mind, as a place where everyone may be touched by art and as a place for self-expression.

Enjoying the experience of art
All of the museum’s activities have been developed so that visitors, freely expressing themselves, may tap into their own creativity and find their spirits nourished.


YM Art Sessions
A program for nourishing the spirit:

This program’s foundation is in so-called art therapy, which focuses on art’s goodhealth benefits. Through this program, which stimulates the five senses and invigorates the right side of the brain, you may also look forward to stress reductionn and other refreshing results.
For those wishing to enjoy the pleasures of art or to boost their creativity, or for those whose spirits feel a little bit run-down, this program will help you find ways to express yourself independently and to feel rejuvenated.

Lectures

In order to allow everyone to enjoy encounters with art filled with a sense of wonder and discovery, we present lectures about art genres that are not constrained by conventional art concepts and that cross over familiar genre boundaries. From time to time, a variety of artists and art specialists will be invited to present talks.



Gallery talks

Curators, touring the exhibition rooms with museum visitors, share observations about and anecdotes related to the fascinating artworks on display. We recommend these talks to those visitors who might wish to learn more about the background and deepen their appreciation of these works.





Artists’ workshops

From time to time, we present workshops and concerts featuring artists and collaborators who are active in a variety of different fields. So, too, by way of meaningful encounters with Yoku Moku’s confectionery creations and the art of Picasso, we organize and present special events featuring pâtissiers (pastry chefs) and other collaborators. Come and enjoy the world of art as presented by the Yoku Moku Museum!
