How is a work of art created? The exhibition Art in the Making tries to answer this question, which means that during the winter holidays, you can see how Rembrandt and Krøyer did it – and find plenty of inspiration for creating your own masterpieces.
Sketch, sculpt, go! In the Children’s Workshop you can sketch out your ideas before you set out to create your very own masterpiece.
The museum’s in-house artists are ready to help you get the creative juices flowing.
Dates: 10 – 18 February 11.30 – 16.30. Also every Saturday and Sunday in February.
Price: DKK 30 + standard admission fee. For ages 3 and up

We have heaps of clay, lots of brushes and plenty of paint in every colour. On 12 February – the Monday beginning the winter holidays – you can help us create five works of art that will be placed in the Sculpture Street afterwards.
The five works will be on display all through the winter holidays so that they can be admired by everyone visiting.
Date: 12 February 11.30 – 15.30
Price: Free with standard admission
Come as a dinosaur, fairy, superhero or whatever you wish. It’s carnival time at SMK – known as ‘fastelavn’ in Danish.
Before we carry out the traditional Danish carnival tradition of ‘beating the barrel’, you can join us for a guided tour of the museum collection to see fancy costumes, masks, the crown of the ‘Cat King’ and other carnival motifs in art. You can also help us create a huge carnival picture.
12.00 – 14.00: Help us create a giant carnival picture
12.30: Carnival-themed guided tour for children
13.20: ‘Beating the barrel’ – a traditional Danish carnival game
To celebrate the day, the café serves traditional Danish carnival buns (‘fastelavnsboller’) and steaming mugs of hot cocoa.
Date: 11 February 12.00 – 14.00
