Summer Workshops 2022 – Arts and Music

This summer, Hafnarborg will offer workshops for children, 6–12 years old. The groups will go on field trips in Hafnarfjörður and basic techniques of art will be introduced by exploring the environment, the museum’s exhibitions, creative work and play. The children will work on projects in different media – drawing, painting and moulding – with the aim of developing visual focus and inspiring creative thought and personal expression.

Two 5-day workshops and one 4-day workshop will be available for ages 6–9 and 10–12. None of the workshops will be the same, so children are welcome to attend more than one workshop. The workshop starting June 20th will then bring in elements of music to the creative process, in connection with The Hafnarborg Songfest. At the end of this workshop, the children will participate in a family concert, as part of the festival’s programme, taking place on Friday June 24th at 5–5:50 p.m.

The instructor of the visual arts workshops will be Unnur Mjöll S. Leifsdóttir and the instructor of the music workshop will be Kolbrún Berglind Grétarsdóttir.
