The Museum and SchoolsIn more ways than one, a museum is like a school. As a museum of art we are part of society’s educational project for its citizens. Our task is to communicate research-based information about interpretations of life that are found in art.
An alternative teaching environment
The museum offers an alternative cross-disciplinary teaching environment.
At ARKEN pupils are presented with objects of artistic expression. The actual physical encounter with the work is essential, affording the pupils an authentic appreciation grounded in ways of expression that rouse their curiosity and make for a vivid experience.
ARKEN Education is part of the School Services
