ARX’s summer container is filled with art and creativity!
ARX’s summer container offers free art activities for children and families throughout the summer.
This summer the ARX Summer Container in Hämeensaari will be the basis for the ARX Cultural Center. The ARX Summer Container is part of the Hämeenlinna´s Summer Street in Hämeensaari area. There will be inspiring and fun things to do for the whole summer for children of all ages and their families. And best of all: for free!
The summer container is open four days a week with a few exceptions. The workshop coverage is wide. There is a changing art workshop every week guided by art professionals.
The ARX Summer Container has continuous non-stop activities throughout the summer, such as visual arts, water games, gardening and yard games. There is no need to register for the activity in advance. You can come to the container on days and at a time that suits you. Participation in the workshops does not require previous experience in the arts and all tools and materials can be found in the container. The ARX Summer Container program has been designed together with the visitors of the Cultural Center ARX. You can also let the staff know if you have any wishes for the activities during the summer.
Children under school age visit the container with their own adult.
