Each Saturday afternoon, Scandinavia House presents our Saturday Art Workshops, which invite children to work with Nordic themes in the Halldór Laxness Library. This October, we will be offering workshops in coordination with our exhibition Light Lines: The Art of Jan Groth, Inger Johanne Grytting, and Thomas Pihl, which will study texture and abstract expression through various techniques.




Abstract paintings are sometimes simply made up of color and lines, with no recognizable objects. In this painting workshop children will paint dots and lines, and use “drybrush” stroke techniques (by squeezing paint out of brushes) to lightly create texture with long brushes.

This event is open to children ages 5+.
