Frans Hals Museum - Hof

Frans Hals is Haarlem’s most famous artist

But why is he so famous? In fact, why do artists make art? Together with the students, we actively look for answers to questions such as these.

More often than not, you immediately see what you like, but why is that? By looking at the paintings and expressing everything they see aloud, students discover different forms and techniques of artworks. Does everyone think the same thing? And does everyone see the same thing in a work of art? Engaging viewing assignments encourage the children to look with a critical eye and to substantiate their own opinions.

The Golden Age and the present day come together in the new Frans Hals Museum. The unique mix of old and new with innovative forms of engagement leads to countless discoveries and heaps of inspiration. Meet at Frans Hals Museum!
