Art education 2023

Art of the Day

Micro lessons

A series of micro-lessons on artworks in the sculpture park are currently in production. The target audience is middle school students, and the lessons will be launched this fall.


How can we enable visual arts education to reflect contemporary art practices? The art form of performance has a significant role in today’s art scene and is exhibited in galleries, biennials, and museums. However, it can feel challenging to approach for both students and art teachers. Working in three dimensions and with sculptures involves physical contact with the materials, but the body itself can also become the material.

In their thesis project at Konstfack, performance artist and art education student Naelu, in collaboration with the Princess Estelle’s Cultural Foundation and the Museum of Ethnography, has explored the use of masks as tools for performance art in visual arts education.>>

Storytelling and perspective with parallax

Wednesday to Sunday between July 5th and August 20th in the Gallery AI exhibition at the Technical Museum.

This year’s workshop for children and families is designed to develop their creativity and teach them about the artistic forms of the sculptures in the park, the techniques they are made with, and the storytelling in artistic composition.

We use the so-called parallax effect to explore scales and perspectives. In the workshop, children choose a figure that is cut out of wood using our laser cutter. The children draw on the wooden silhouette and create a short storyboard for the character. The figure is then placed in front of or between some pre-made backgrounds, see example image below. When a photo is taken, an illusion is created that the background is far away, while the figure appears close due to the different scales. This is despite the fact that the backgrounds and the figure are very close to each other in reality. It also becomes a play with 2D and 3D – how can the eye perceive something that is layers of 2D as 3D?
