School visit to The Nivaagaard Collection

The Nivaagaard Collection offers school pupils teaching Tuesday thru Friday, where pupils are given a unique opportunity to learn more about art, culture, Danish and European history and, not least, the evolution of the visual arts over a period of more than 500 years.

The museum’s teaching takes place in front of the paintings themselves. The teaching is dialogue-based so as to provide students with tools with which to study paintings on their own, both at galleries and in the classroom. To pique our students curiosity about the artworks we make an effort to engage students through dialogue and practical exercises.

Teaching is free for schoolchildren and can be booked by writing to the Chief curator Birgitte von Folsach: bf@nivaagaard.dk or Curator Maren Bramsen: mb@nivaagaard.dk.

Pupils are only permitted to eat a packed lunch at the museum if there is sufficient space in the café on the day of their visit. During the summer months, visitors can also eat their lunch on the terrace.

Duration: 1 hour, depending on the pupils’ grade and the level of teaching required.
