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.
