Folk high school, art and experiences!

On the art line, the goal is for you to explore the breadth of the art subject. You get to try yourself as a designer of clothes, as a glassblower and as a knife maker. We adapt the level to your starting point, but start basic to get everyone involved. 

On the line you meet others who are interested in art, and we learn a lot from each other. We emphasize good experiences and collaborate with other lines at the school. You get to create a performance together with the Music Line, create animation with the Photo Line, and experience Copenhagen together with the line for Norwegian culture and adventure.

Art / experiences have given me good opportunities for development in art! You experiment with different media and techniques, and you have a fantastic teacher who comes with good feedback and guidance further in the process!

Study trips: Art / Experiences

We focus on good experiences and gather lots of inspiration.

  • Berlin 
  • København 
  • Lofoten 
  • Barcelona 
  • Venezia

Berlin is a vibrant city. After looking at architecture, street art and vintage shops, we join a local street artist at a workshop. 

In Lofoten we live near the sea, the forces of nature and not least the light. We blow glass balls and learn about the Vikings. 

Copenhagen is the capital for Nordic design and we experience the contrast from the crown jewels at Rosenborg Castle to the free state of Christiania, at the same time as we study masterpieces at the State Museum of Art and have fun at the amusement park.  

On the trip to Barcelona we visit magical Parc Guell og Sagrada Familia. Inside among the cobbled medieval alleys we find the Picasso Museum and fine food markets where we shop for a nice dinner in the apartment. 

Venice is the city of beauty, magnificent architecture, canals and history. We look at modern art Peggy Guggenheim and takes the boat out to the famous colorful Burano Island.

Regarding Covid-19

Due to Covid-19 and constant changes in the infection situation, it is difficult to say for sure for the coming school year. But we follow all infection control advice and travel advice given by the authorities. We plan for an almost normal school year, and so that all travel can take place as normal. But we will work out good alternative solutions if this is not possible. Destinations on study trips can be added elsewhere (including domestically) if natural disasters or other external and extraordinary circumstances occur which the school does not control, and which significantly affect the implementation of the trip. No financial compensation is normally given for this.
