Art ought to have more focus in our society. Creating free space, art makes us more human and the world a better place to be. Welcome to Kunsthøjskolen i Holbæk

A place for Art

Kunsthøjskolen contains a leading educational environment in the development of the visual arts. Different people meet here, exchange views and conceive and implement projects across subjects. Teachers are all professional contemporary visual artists, architects, designers, etc. Here you can test and develop your skills in contemporary art.

Kunsthøjskolen wishes to challenge your notions of what life and art can be. Through practices in the aesthetics we explore the world and reach a greater understanding of it, of each other and ourselves in society.

Please note that the main language at Kunsthøjskolen is Danish. However, teaching of individual subjects and ‘family’ meetings might be in English if necessary.



A semester (18 week course) at Kunsthøjskolen includes much more than just common tutelage.
Kunsthøjskolen is the frame for an intense creative environment, where the social aspect plays a particularly important role in every day life as well as for the overall benefit of the student.
