Louisiana has great appeal for children – every day during daytime hours. The Children’s Wing is the children’s own area in the museum, with creative activities on three floors. Every day there are open workshops where children from 4 to 16 can work creatively – paint, draw, sculpt and explore the adult artists’ and architects’ working methods and expression.
All activities for children are based on the museum’s current exhibitions and Louisiana’s permanent collection, so the children are introduced to great artists and their works from which they can afterwards draw inspiration for their own creative activities. Louisiana’s arts professionals organize and conduct the various activities for children.
All children can participate in the Monthly Art contest with the images and pieces they have created in the Children’s Wing. For kids who want to explore and develop their creative abilities, the Visual Arts School is open in the spring, summer and autumn. During school breaks and around holidays, the Children’s Wing arranges special activity programs.

OPEN SUMMER WORKSHOPS June 28 - August 10
PHILIP GUSTON PAINTING WORKSHOP: Shoes, cigarettes, houses and dreams are amongst other themes that Philip Guston paints over and over again. Learn about his painting methods and play with drawing and the pink colour in his figurative paintings.
EMIL NOLDE PAINTING WORKSHOP: Flowers, landscapes and portraits in intense colours. Try out Emil Nolde’ wet-in-wet technique with watercolours.
FROM SQUARE TO SCULPTURE: Jean Dubuffet’ sculpture has both soft curves and hard edges. The black lines show the sculpture’s crooked shape. Make your own Dubuffet inspired sculpture in the clay workshop by forming a rectangle of clay, which both have hard edges and soft curves. Discover what happens with your sculpture when you paint black lines along its edges.
POP UP SCULPTURE: Explore the Louisiana Sculpture Park and draw one or more of the numerous sculptures. In the workshop you can turn them into three-dimensional sculptures. You can also make your own 'sculpture book' where the sculptures pop up when you open it.
