Heart Art during Barnetimen (Children's Hour)
Member Event Community Event
DECORAH, Iowa —Preschoolers and their caregivers are invited to “heart art” during Barnetimen (Children’s Hour) at Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center.
“We’ll hunt for heart art around the museum, then show our love for family and friends by making them shiny and colorful heart ‘jewelry’ to wear. We’ll also indulge in a ‘hearty’ snack,” Jennifer Kovarik, Vesterheim Youth Educator, said. Meet in the lobby of the museum’s Main Building.
The program is free, thanks to sponsors David and Brenda Carlson, Greg and Karen Bruening, Amy and Keith Bruening, and Norwegian Mutual Insurance Association. Barnetimen meets at Vesterheim Museum the third Tuesday of each month, September-April. The program is geared toward 3 to 5 year olds, but all ages are welcome. No sign-up is necessary—come to one session or all of them.
Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, in scenic Decorah, Iowa, showcases the best in historic and contemporary Norwegian folk and fine arts, and explores the American immigrant experience.
