Every Saturday there is a Children's art club in the Van Abbemuseum. During this time children visit the exhibitions to be inspired by the artworks in a playful manner. After this visit they are ready to make their own art! There is a different theme and activity every week, and at the end of the workshop your son or daughter takes his or her artwork home. Do you see little artists in your children? Let them join the Children's art club!
Book Club: High Tide
"Told more or less in reverse chronological order, High Tide is a psychological mystery about Ieva, her dead lover, her imprisoned husband, and the way their youthful decisions dramatically impacted the rest of their lives. One of Latvia's most notable young writers, Abele is a fresh voice in European fiction. Hopefully you'll take the opportunity to read this book, by an author who sounds promising, but, like last month's Australian author, is probably not familiar to you...and that's what's nice about our international book discussion group!"
