Skissernas Museum – Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art is a unique learning environment with an art collection providing both inspiration and knowledge.
We offer a broad and fun school program for groups from pre-school to upper secondary/high school. The programs are permeated by the museum’s specialisation in public art and the creative process. The pupils get an opportunity to express thoughts, observations and feelings through dialogues about art and through their own creative process. We use art as a starting point to provide perspective on our time and on history.
The school programs can be run within the framework of Creative Schools (Skapande skola). If you wish to collaborate on a particular project, please do not hesitate to contact us.

SCHOOL PROGRAMS IN THE SPRING SEMESTER 2017
COLOUR AND FORM
For pre-school children from age 5 – year 2
We investigate Charlotte von Poehl’s work 7000 Newton, which consists of 7000 colourful clay pieces installed on the floor, we hunt around among other colourful works of art at the museum and talk about colour theory, geometry and composition. We look for forms, try to name various colour tones and wonder about how colours are used and what they make us think and feel. In the workshop, we experiment with colour mixing, develop our own shades and create a joint artwork with everyone’s pieces.
LOVE AND NORMS
For schoolchildren in years 3–6
We dive deep into the works of art which deal with love and norms, including the contributions to the competition held just over 100 years ago to decorate the civil wedding ceremonies room in Stockholm’s city hall. Together we reflect on how a mural about love and marriage might look today. In the workshop, we paint our own, new interpretations of the competition entries which reflect our time and the way we think love can be symbolised today.
WORKSHOP IN ART
For schoolchildren in years 6–9
An unusual school programme in which we work among the artworks and the pupils themselves practise presenting the works to each other. We start with a workshop on image analysis in which the pupils are assigned an artwork and get to reflect on the order in which it was created, the choice of materials, its purpose and inspiration. Together we discuss and compare the creative process of various artists. Finally, we try to sketch the artworks in the exhibition rooms in various ways.
ART AND POWER
For schoolchildren in years 6–9 and upper secondary school/high school
We take the exhibition of American street artist Swoon as our starting point to discuss the relationship between art and power. Who gets to decide about art in public spaces? What is included in the concept of street art and how is it different from other art in the public domain? What rules are there and whose stories are allowed to be seen? We discuss the issues above from the point of view of the roles of the artist, the commissioner and the user of the space. In the workshop, we work in groups to create works of art on the basis of fictitious commissions for public spaces.
Duration: 2 h, weekdays from 9:30 to 11:30. First session on 1 February
