Basic to advanced studies (11-16 year olds)

At the age of 11 - 16 the studies reach a phase where the emphasis of learning the basics of visual art moves on towards more challenging and specific topics. The studies consist of a wide variety of artistic approaches, such as: painting and drawing, printing, photography and media-art, site-specific and architectural art, animation, cartoon drawing, ceramics and sculpting.

The emphasis of the studies is to support each student to find their own personal line of expression in the field of visual art. The students are provided with knowledge of the history of art, contemporary art and different cultures. Environmental issues as well as global topics are discussed during the lessons. These can be dealt with for example as topics of art-works and working processes. Each student is encouraged to find his/her personal aims and ambitions and getting to know one's personal creative process.
