On March 27, the children from the Art Club will work with designer, dancer and choreographer Victoria Heggelund.
The Art Club is for children in 1st to 8th grade. The Art Club introduces children to contemporary art in a fun and accessible way. Here, we explore what contemporary art is, and what kind of experiences and tools we can bring from art into our everyday lives. The children will meet and work with professional artists, and get explore our exhibitions together with our skilled educators. At the end of each semester we organise an exhibition for family and friends.
The theme for the 2022 semester was how we express ourselves in society. Together we explores how we receive and share information. Inspired by this spring's exhibition Vision Machines by Peggy Ahwesh, we asked how we can create new expressions by combining familiar forms. How can this help us see things from new perspectives?
