A work of art comes alive!

A work of art comes alive!
Together we´ll examine one work in the exhibition and we´ll try to imagine what is happening in front of it and behind it, above and below. What was the sequence of events that led the subject to the place where it froze inside the painting? What happened afterwards? Using paper, we´ll create an animated short movie through which the work of art will literally come alive. 
Workshop supervision: Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir

The Gallery encourages families to visit and ponder the art on their own terms. We also offer diverse programming on a regular basis with an emphasis on enabling families to enjoy time together in creative ways, whether through live guided tours or custom workshops. All events are advertised specially in connection with exhibitions.

The kids' club Krummi runs a varied and fun program every month where cheerful kids are invited to learn about the works of art in the collection of the National Gallery of Iceland, create works of art and play in a nurturing environment.
