The young artists who aged from six and up painted 'The longest canal' that will be depicted in the Amsterdam Museum until 12 January created not only what they imagine about Amsterdam's canals but also different locations of the city during their trip by canals boats.
"The longest canal" project was for the children a stepping stone to the portrayal stories about the the past and the present of the city.
Historians and artists gave them 'lessons' about Amsterdam's canals which began to built in 1683 and educative cultural information about the architecture during these centuries.
