Art workshop in Narvik

22 May 2024

Tuesday 21st of May, Narvik Museum received a visit from the 7th grade from Narvik Montessori.
The students got to take part in an exciting art workshop with Kven artist Åsne Kummeneje Mellem!

The students got to join the artist in her art exhibition where they heard about how the artist uses natural materials in her artworks and how she harvests materials.

Then the students got to go out to look for and collect their own natural materials they could use to make art during the workshop. Many creative works of art were created, including bird nests, boats, and other more abstract works of art. Thank you for visiting!
