School classes and nurseries

We offer free tours and workshops for nurseries, primary and lower secondary schools, and upper secondary schools. The tours are based on dialogue and founded on the principles of a philosophical conversation adapted for each individual group. If you have any particular wishes as regards the content, we can help with this.

After school tours or family tours on Sundays, we hold workshops for children at Atelier Felix. Visual artist Annika Simonsson presents the theme of the exhibition and children are able to explore the materials, tools and techniques used by the featured artist. The children have the opportunity to be creative and present what they have made in an exhibition of their own.

We also offer workshops for pupils during the school holidays.


Kunstnernes Hus Venneskoler is a pilot project in collaboration with Uranienborg, Ruseløkka and Morellbakken Junior high schools, as well as the visual artists Cecilia Jiménez Ojeda, Marit Silsand and Ahmed Umar.

As a Venneskole, this year's cohort with 7th graders has been offered both artist visits to their schools and visits to Kunstnernes Hus every year up to and including the 10th grade. With this project, we hope to lay the foundation for insight into contemporary art and knowledge of local artists, which we hope will contribute to increasing young people's interest in art.
