Kunsthøjskolen is an always dedicated and enthusiastic place with a lively social life.

It’s the height of the season

The summer courses at Kunsthøjskolen are vibrant gatherings for people who seek to gain professional artistic insight while enjoying good company. We offer 5 courses – one of 8 and three of 14 days duration. There are 5 different workshops on every short term course and you choose the workshop that you wish to attend upon registration.

Professional artists teach 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 realized 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.

Please note that the main language at Kunsthøjskolen is Danish. However, teaching of individual subjects and personal guidance might be in English if necessary. Children cannot be brought on our courses.
