Sign up for this spring’s Kids’ Art Club!

Kids from 1st to 8th grade are welcome!

One Sunday a month, Kunsthall Stavanger facilitates a meaningful interaction with contemporary art. Here, the children explore Norwegian and international art, and produce their own works in collaboration with professional artists in four different workshops. At the end of the semester we make an exhibition, which will be open to family and friends.

The theme of this semester's Kids’ Art Club is humor: How is humor used in contemporary art today? What can we create with humor? What is the function and role of humor in art? And can jokes be art?
