- About Ateneum
Visit the workshop for fresh viewpoints
Ateneum's workshop offers different kinds of courses for museum visitors of all ages. The techniques used can range from silk screen printing to ceramics, as well as the more traditional methods of drawing and painting. Through observation, discussing and experimenting, those taking part in the workshops will be able to look at the works of art on display in the museum from a fresh perspective.
Workshop activities can also be tailored to suit people with disabilities.
Guided workshop courses can also be reserved for groups!
Workshop courses can be reserved for groups in Swedish, English or Russian. These workshops are also suitable for persons with reduced mobility.
