Learn to use techniques, explore themes, and experiment with materials. Visit exhibitions, see artworks, and hear what visual artists think. Explore your own ideas and images. Develop your creativity.

The teaching is structured in periods where you focus on different techniques, themes, and expressions. The assignments or projects usually have a clearly defined framework.

You solve assignments and use your own ideas. The teachers give you feedback along the way.

Good working conditions

All students have their own workspace in the art room. There, you can have your own equipment and projects throughout the year.

Through the school fees, you have paid for the material costs of the teaching projects, and you can freely use the equipment available at the school.

Of course, you have access to the workspace in the art room around the clock.

Academic program

You do not need any prior knowledge to attend Visual Arts. We have a program that provides teaching at your own level, whether you are a beginner or have worked extensively with different expressions.

Throughout the year, you work on your own artworks and receive individual feedback on your work.

"Blåtur" in Western Norway

Mandatory: Yes

Price: Included in course price

Duration: 2 dager

Towards the end of the school year, we go on a joint "blåtur" to an unknown place in Western Norway.

The term "blåtur" may not be that well known, but many people have been on a "blåtur" without knowing that's what it's called. A "blåtru"r is simply a surprise trip - where you join the trip, but have no idea where the trip will take you. A trip "out of the blue", if you will.

This is primarily a social trip that we take to have a nice end to the school year.

At the folk high school, you're allowed to be social and have fun together. Here, we have safe boundaries that allow you to be with friends and have fun.

Come along to Bergen

As a student at Fana Folk High School, you will become familiar with Bergen.

Bergen has a vibrant cultural scene. Throughout the year, we go to theater performances, exhibitions, and concerts.

The city also hosts a variety of festivals. During the school year, there are international film festivals, theater festivals, and music festivals in the city.

You also have time to explore the city on your own. Go to the cinema, stroll around and observe the city's life, go up to Fløyen or have a coffee at one of the cozy cafes.

Creative main subjects and many elective subjects

The school has many different main subjects. This creates a school environment with diversity and many different types of people.

You immerse yourself in the main subject with your class throughout the school year.

In addition, you choose from many exciting elective subjects. You choose elective subjects several times during the school year and can choose new subjects each time.

Safe and educational trips

We have a joint start-up trip at the beginning of the year. This is a cozy low-threshold trip that everyone participates in.

All the main subjects go on study trips. Some travel abroad and others stay in Norway. Our study trips combine academic content with social community on the trip.

Get to know Norwegian language and culture

Our language courses are suitable for beginners and students with som previous knowledge of Norwegian. After a year at Fana folk high school, you can expect to understand and speak Norwegian reasonably well.
