Art + at Sunnhordland folk high school
Be inspired! At Sunnhordland folkehøgskule you will develop both technique and creativity through the form that interests you most, be it underground, digital or classical art.
Freedom to choose
The course provides studio-based practice that is likely to involve the blurring of boundaries and to be open in regard to different disciplines and traditions. Art + encourages exploration through the disciplines of drawing, digital media, painting, video, installation, performance, intervention, photo-media, print and other mixed media.
Will increase your awareness of the range of media available to you and provide further opportunities for the exploration of new ideas, approaches and techniques. This allows you to vary the media in which you work and choose the media forms most appropriate to your ideas.
Guest teachers will also help you to develop. Among others we have been visited by the reputed urban artist Brad Downey as well as street artists, Gaia, The Wa, Cane Morto and Chis Stain.
Tuition by artists, engaging in constructive discussion with you, and the giving of ongoing supportive critical feedback about your work, helps develop your potential.
You will work within areas that are in time and characteristic of our visual lives. The aim is to explore and play with artistic expression. You will be met with a flexible attitude to art, one that is closely related to the visual culture and urban landscapes of our time.
There are good opportunities to participate in exhibitions both in the community and at the school. In addition we take part in art events elsewhere such as at the Nuart in Stavanger. Here you can find videos from art students working at Nuart.
The attraction to artists of Berlin makes it a place we try to visit every spring.
Art + for you
Whether you have a lot of experience in one or many art forms, little background but are interested in the subject then our art line is for you. The individual method of teaching allows you to develop artistically in relation to your specific interests and background.
