Let the artists at Moderna Museet inspire you! We have art that is exciting for the whole family. If you can’t come to Skeppsholmen, check out these ideas from the world of art that you can enjoy from home. Welcome!

Be creative at home with Alberto Giacometti

Do-it-yourself videos

Let’s look at photographs of the artist Alberto Giacometti’s works and be creative at home. Look, feel, redesign and try again. Find a way where your hands and eyes can explore and create something together. We experiment with materials such as pens, clay, instant coffee and so on.

Online Workshop

Interactive live-stream

Together with the art educator Rebecka Stone, we create like the artists in the Moderna Museet collection. We take a closer look at a few of the Museum’s most popular works, and we try different painting techniques or make our own sculptures. During these creative workshops, live-streamed straight from Moderna Museet, you can chat to Rebecka and everyone who is watching.

Create like an artist

Film and inspiration

In the series “Create like an artist” you will receive tips on how you can create your own artworks at home inspired by artists in Moderna Museet’s collection. We will create artworks from things we might already have at home. There is no right or wrong, ugly or beautiful when you are creating. But there is one rule – there are no rules.
