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, street art or classical art.
Technique and creativity
At Art + you will learn drawing technique, painting, design and other media: This is essential for creating good work and giving you the skills that are now demanded in more and more fields of study.
Where do the ideas come from? How do you develop them? Good technique combined with creativity is an important combination for making art, and Art + allows you to explore in a variety of ways that you can use to further develop your creative potential.
Throughout the year we hold exhibitions, and produce street art, mural and performance art. We also collaborate with the other lines at school.
Guest teachers will be an additional source of inspiration. For example, we have had the internationally renowned artist Brad Downey as guest teacher and a workshop with the famous graffiti artist Tare. We have also had visits from street art artists inluding Gaia, The Wa, Chris Stain, Akay, NDA and Cane Morto.
Not least, the main teacher on Kunst +, John Cunningham, is himself a competent street artist.
Freedom in media selection
What would you like to create? We assume both that today's art is very diverse as is what interests you. Therefore, you will meet a wide range of art forms. You can choose to immerse yourself in classical art expressions such as drawing and painting or in newer expressions like street art, murals, etc.
You will learn techniques and be taught by artists who are in constructive dialogue with you. At Art + you will experience a unique environment where you can develop within the media that interests you most. In addition to street art, drawing and painting, you can choose areas uch as video installation and comics. Photo is used also for creative documentation.
Due to the unique composition of the class at the school, you will also have the opportunity to work with students on other lines such as design in computer games and installations together with Music Production.
Art + for you
Art + is suitable for those who have a lot of experience in one or more art forms and for those who do not have much experience. Most importantly, you are interested in the subject. Individual follow-up allows you to further develop on the basis of your interests and prerequisites.
