Children have always been welcome at Louisiana. They even have their own three-floor Children’s Wing, which is their very own universe. Draw, paint, model and walk in the footsteps of artists and architects. Here they can learn, but above all have fun!
Louisiana Museum of Modern Art’s Children’s Wing is, like the rest of the museum, an architectural gem. Here, there are three bright and airy floors with elbow room for creatively. In the workshops, expert art intermediaries are ready to facilitate learning at eye-level with children. The workshops are open Tuesday through Sunday 11:00-17:30.
The Children’s Wing always engages with activities that are based on current exhibitions or Louisiana’s permanent collection. Children enjoy the opportunity to explore artistic and architectural expressions and ways of working with art.
This can include shaping abstract animals from clay, just like Max Ernst. Or letting paint drip on the paper to try out Sam Francis’ artistic methods. Or making small furniture with a glue gun and cardboard to create your own small universe, just like Pipilotti Rist. The tasks are imaginative, playful and stimulating.
With a hands-on and inspiring approach, children learn to deal with art in a straightforward and relaxed way that can benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Children aged 4-16 can attend the Sunday workshops in Louisiana. Here, you see the current exhibition and talk about it before heading to the workshop to try out the artist’s ideas, materials and techniques.
This takes place every Sunday 11:30-13:00, starting in the Children’s Wing.
During winter and Easter holidays or autumn school breaks, visiting the Children’s Wing is always a great choice with even more fun activities to engage with.
