Summer at the museum

Do you have green fingers?

If not, you’ll surely get them when you take part in the Johannes Larsen Museum’s many summer activities for families with children. The activities begin on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 10 AM and continue until Sunday, August 12, 2018.

In the museum garden, you’ll find Larsen’s expedition tent, where you can make green collages and take part in drawing a gigantic green picture, where you may only draw with a green ballpoint pen. The activities are open every day during museum hours.

Read more about activities in the expedition tent here.

How green is the grass in Larsen’s garden?

On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 AM until 3 PM, one of the museum’s gifted educators will help you to paint a green picture at an easel in the garden. You could also make green plants out of clay or roll out clay  tiles and paint them in different lovely shades of green.

All of our summer activities are inspired by the museum’s current exhibition, GREEN, showing artwork by Christine Swane. She was Johannes Larsen’s sister, and she drew, painted, embroidered and made ceramics, all of which can be seen in the exhibition, GREEN.
