Green garden pictures and green fingers

Tid: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 AM to 3 PM, July 3 until August 9
Sted: The Johannes Larsen Museum

Do you have a green thumb?

If not, you’ll surely get one when you take part in our supervised summer activities for all ages :). 

Here, you can learn to mix many different tones of green, and to draw and then paint your motif at an easel in the museum garden. You can also shape green plants and flowers in Fimo-clay and take it home to decorate your room.

Visit the exhibition GREEN and get inspired to work on our summer activities. Christine Swane was, in addition to being a painter, also very interested in botany. She grew many of the plants that she later painted in her green pictures.

These activities will take place in the expedition tent in Larsen’s garden.

Read about the other things you can do in the expedition tent, which is open to guests during museum hours.
