When studying fine art at Jyderup Folk High School you will learn and develop yourself as an artist by throwing yourself into new challenges and dare to fail – learning by doing. You get a unique opportunity to meet and work together with established Danish and international artists and graphic designers.
The teaching is a mix of theory and practice. You obtain new insights and have time to work on your own terms. It is up to you as a student how much effort you put into your practice. The more you work, the better guidance you can get, and the more you can develop yourself as an artist. We also take a look at the world of fine art in general from the non-commercial activist arts to the commercial and curatorial arts. Ongoing during the semester we will visit current exhibitions in Denmark and have visits from inspiring guest teachers from Denmark and abroad.
At the fine art course, you will,
attend workshops with painting, drawing, sculpture, video and installation art
get professional feedback and learn new working techniques in your art
learn what it means to work seriously, meaningfully and focused with art
learn how to organize yourself as an artist and how to talk about and understand your own work
develop a project from idea to finished work
curate and establish exhibitions from project description to ready exhibition
meet several guest teachers
If you wish to apply to an art academy in Denmark or abroad we will offer you consultancy on that matter.
