We “heart” folk art at Vesterheim! Celebrate Valentine’s Day, during Barnetimen (Children’s Hour) with Vesterheim! Preschoolers and their caregivers are invited to connect online with Jennifer Kovarik, Vesterheim’s Youth Educator, to explore objects and stories in the museum’s collection and make art inspired by those objects.
A new video will be released on Tuesday, February 16, from 10-10:30 a.m. on Vesterheim’s website here or Facebook page. The video will be available for later viewing on Vesterheim’s YouTube channel.
Loving hands have created art in the museum’s collection and many artists include hearts in their unique designs. Hunt for heart shapes in the museum’s collection then show love for family and friends by making some fun and beautiful heart art using just a few simple materials.
Instructions for the make-at-home art project are available here.
Barnetimen programs are geared toward 3 – 5 year olds, but all ages are welcome, and new programs are available online the third Tuesday of the month, September through April, at 10 a.m.
This program is sponsored by the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund Phase 1, an initiative of Arts Midwest and its peer United States Regional Arts Organizations made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; with additional support from local sponsors David and Brenda Carlson and Norwegian Mutual Insurance Association.
