Varied and exciting teaching

Regardless of what you are best at or which creative activity you prefer, your level of experience does not matter when applying for this major. We adapt the teaching to each individual student's needs and area of ​​interest. Throughout the year, you will get a taste of many different techniques together with the class, but what you delve into and spend the most time on is to a certain extent up to you.

Tours and excursions

We sometimes go out into nature to find materials, inspiration and to build the community in the class. We don't go on demanding hikes, but still very nice and preferably with great views and play of colors. Autumn colors in the forest, a seven-stone stove on the shore or an idyllic sunset on beautiful Runde. We also travel on excursions to exhibitions and art festivals. Among other things, we visit the Nordic light festival of photography in Kristiansund. We are also traveling to the art city of Barcelona in February. Here there is much to see, experience and be inspired by.
