“Kunsthøjskolen is an always dedicated and enthusiastic place with a lively social life.
During the summer of 2017, we run one course of 8 days and three courses of 14 days. Each course consists of 5 subjects, each participant chooses one. We offer to work within all contemporary artistic media. Professional artists work at the school’s workshops, which are open around the clock. This gives each participant the best conditions to work under and the possibility for sudden ideas to be realised no matter what the time of day. The courses are intensive and very concise, giving good possibilities to delve into a single artistic discipline. Besides the workshops and the teaching, then there will be a number of lectures, films and other activities for everyone, on contemporary and historical, artistic and cultural themes. No prior qualifications are necessary for admission. Children cannot be brought on our courses.
