From the Museu Carmen Thyssen Andorra, we are pleased to share with you the calendar of activities for the month of October.
- Discover the Talents of the Thyssen: The Luminists of Sitges
Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 October
We begin this month of October with a new edition of the Discover the Thyssen Talents activity, dedicated to the Luminists of Sitges!
Through a fantastic tale, you can discover how some artists have captured the sunlight so specific to Sitges! How do they do it?
Once the mystery is solved, participants will be able to create their own luminous decoration with original materials to capture the Mediterranean light like the luminists.
- Distant landscapes activity
Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October
On Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October, come and take part once again in the globe-making workshop!
For this activity, participants will discover the story and concerns of Sara, a 6-year-old girl who spends her holidays with her grandparents in Andorra in 2071. The story will highlight important principles of our environment and the consequences of our current actions.
During the workshop, families will be able to create their own personalised earth in the form of a globe, using acrylic paint, drawing or collage techniques.
- Personalise the Talents Activity
Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October
On Saturday 16 and Sunday 17, you can participate in the Personalise the Talents workshop!
The activity is related to the Spanish pop artist Antonio de Felipe. He has painted three Marilyns, all inspired by three famous artists: Warhol, Mondrian and Lichtenstein. Replicas of these works are outside the museum and will be customised by the artist and sold at the Unicef Andorra charity auction on 21 October at 8pm.
The aim of this weekend’s workshop is to personalise their creations with characters from the current exhibition Talented Painters of the Same Origin. From Rigalt to Puigdengolas with different elements and using the collage technique.
- Discover the Thyssen Talents: the Olot School
Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October
On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October, the MCTA team awaits you to discover the Thyssen Talents, part of the current exhibition Talented Painters of the Same Origin. From Rigalt to Puigdengolas.
Through a fantastic tale, participants will discover the legend of the witches’ peak, a famous story that inspired great landscape artists of the Olot School such as Joaquim Vayreda or Ramon Martí i Alsina.
During the workshop, those present will be able to create and illustrate with crayons or paint their own legend based on a game of chance.
- Halloween and Castanyada activity

To celebrate the darkest holiday of the year, participants will be immersed in a frightfully fun workshop!
