Kids Painting Workshop at the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam

Yesterday Maebh and I spent the day in Amsterdam having a mom and daughter day.  A highlight of our trip was the Kids Painting Workshop at the Van Gogh Museum.   Many weekends children between 6 and 12 can attend painting workshops in this world- famous museum.  It starts with a guided tour especially for children (in Dutch and English). This inspires them, then they do a workshop of painting and sketching and take home their masterpieces in a special box easy for transporting – we carried it around Amsterdam and on the train home.   Sessions cost €7.50 and there is a limit so do book in, if interested.

Of course it’s not the original behind her!  In fact, you can tough this one.


The “theme” this week was frightening and scary.  Her work of art are below … which include CROWS and SKULLS.

You can use the two hour duration of the workshop to visit the museum yourself or leave – whatever you want.   The entrance fees for adults is currently €19 but as I have my museumkaart it was free for me to enter.  I did pay €5 for a self-guided audio tour around the museum.    The last 10 minutes the parents are brought in and allowed to take photos and their session is explained.

She really enjoyed it so will be doing it again in the future for sure and if we go back with Soren, we’ll check out the Treasure Hunt!  We also visited the Anne Frank House today too – but you were not allowed to take photos inside so there is not too much to share.
