120 kids to a drawing-Mecca

15. March 2017 | The Johannes Larsen Museum

The Danish Drawing Championship Tour (if there were such a thing) visited the Johannes Larsen Museum for Big Drawing Day. 120 pupils from Funen were invited from all around Funen.

On February 20, 120 pupils from the upper grades of different schools on Funen came to the Johannes Larsen Museum to take part in a special day with a focus on drawing.

Creative abilities have never been more sought after by businesses and professions than they are now. Nonetheless, children usually stop drawing at the age of 10 or 11 when art is dropped from their class schedule. At Johannes Larsen Museum, we want to do something about this lack of art, so we invited young people in the 7th, 8th and 9th grades to a drawing-Mecca in order to strengthen the pupils’ drawing skills and their creativity.

It turned out to be a fantastic day, with the young artists giving it their all with pencil and paper - just like Johannes Larsen would have done!
