Regarding the summer programme

By now, we are all familiar with the changes the COVID-19 pandemic has entailed for society. From 21 May, you are once again welcome to visit The Nordic Watercolour Museum, specially adapted to the new circumstances. Unfortunately, some of the activities we usually offer during the summer have had to be cancelled. We are having to explore exciting new ways of working and new methods for sharing our art and information with the public.

To avoid group gatherings, there will be no public or pre-booked guided tours during summer 2020. Instead we are producing material that can be used for introductory or in-depth information, either remotely or individually at the museum.

The open workshop provides a space for individual creation, albeit under limited forms. The number of places is being significantly reduced to enable visitors to keep their distance. There will, however, be no external workshops, such as our pop-up workshops in Skärhamn marina.

Our courses have been adapted accordingly. The summer art school and the adult’s/children’s courses will be held outdoors as far as possible, and in premises where distance can be maintained. We are currently in discussion with outside course leaders about how the courses should be run. All participants will be informed before the course start date.

We are also reviewing our material for younger visitors. The discovery bag will be temporarily unavailable. The educational material we are producing can be used individually at the museum or remotely, with no risk of disease transmission.

The Nordic Watercolour Museum complies with Public Health Agency of Sweden recommendations. When we re-open on 21 May, our premises and procedures will be specially adapted to ensure maximum safety for our staff and visitors.​ Read more about the summer’s exhibitions here. We look forward to welcoming you – 2 metres apart and following the latest Public Health Agency of Sweden guidelines.
