Bjork performs at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. She'll return to the L.A. area for several concerts this summer.

Bjork is returning to Los Angeles in June - and she's bringing something for the kids.

The Museum of Contemporary Art announced Thursday that it's collaborating with the Icelandic singer-songwriter for a new arts education project for students 9 to 14 years old. The free event will take place June 2, during the museum's monthly family day.

The workshop, called the "Biophilia Education Program" is named after Bjork's 2011 album and  based around an interactive iPad app. The hands-on program involves using technology to play music.

This video of a workshop held in Iceland in 2011 highlights the project. 

Bjork aims to bring "arts experience to children who might otherwise not have access to it, and engages children with learning difficulties  and disabilities," according to the museum's release.

Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, is using the Biophilia Education Program in its school curriculum for the next three years.

By the way, Bjork will be performing June 2, June 5 and June 8 at the Hollywood Palladium. She's also scheduled to appear June 11 at the Hollywood Bowl.
