Barnetimen (Children's Hour)

November 17, 2020 | 10:00 a.m.

Location: Online

Barnetimen (Children’s Hour) is online! Preschoolers and their caregivers are invited to join on our website here or Vesterheim’s Facebook page or YouTube channel.

Connect with Jennifer Kovarik, Vesterheim’s Youth Educator, to explore objects in the museum’s collection and make art inspired by those objects.

This Month: Get ready for winter! Norwegians have a saying that there is no bad weather, only bad clothing! In the Northern Hemisphere, the weather is getting colder now and it is time to put on warmer clothing. During the session, explore Vesterheim’s collection of winter clothing, like warm sweaters, caps, and mittens. Inspired by these objects, decorate a sweater, cap, or mittens using colors, patterns, and texture.

Print and decorate a cozy cap, mittens, and sweater with your favorite colors! Add texture and see what patterns you can make.


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. The program is free of charge and no previous sign-up is necessary.

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.
