See, Think, and Create Like an Artist at Vesterheim’s Barnetimen (Children’s Hour)

DECORAH, Iowa — Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, invites all pre-school-aged children and their parents or caregivers to a Valentine hunt at Barnetimen (Children's Hour) on February 12 from 10:00-11:00 a.m.



The group will meet first at the ArtHaus Studio at 516 W. Water Street and then go together to the museum to hunt for hearts and Valentine’s Day colors, learning the stories of Norwegian immigrants along the way. After the museum visit, children and caregivers will return to the ArtHaus Studio to create art and enjoy a snack.



Led by Lea Lovelace from ArtHaus, Barnetimen meets the second Wednesday of each month to explore the lives of immigrants revealed through artwork in the museum's collections. The program is geared toward 3-5 year olds, but all ages are welcome. No sign-up is necessary—come to one session or all of them.



Barnetimen is free of charge and sponsored by Keith and Amy Bruening of Decorah, David and Brenda Carlson of Decorah, and Bank of the West.



A Decorah native and a Luther College graduate, Lovelace has worked in the field of Art Education for over a decade and has her Master of Arts Degree in Art Education from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has taught art with diverse populations of varied ages, directed programs for a not-for-profit community art school, and managed teacher programs at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. She co-founded ArtHaus in Decorah in 2008 with theater professional Kristen Underwood and teaches art classes there each year.



For information about Barnetimen, please contact Jennifer Kovarik at 563-382-9681 or jkovarik@vesterheim.org, or check vesterheim.org. More information about ArtHaus can be found at www.arthausdecorah.org.
