Workshops at Trondheim Kunstmuseum

  •  (Foto/Photo)

Through tours, workshops, courses, and events, we create engaging encounters with art for both children and adults. We have a wide range of workshops for kindergartens, primary school, junior high, and high schools. 

We welcome booked groups, Monday to Friday, on tour and workshop in TKM Bispegata and in TKM Gråmølna. We also offer open tours at advertised times. 

Read more about our offers below!

Red, yellow & blue

Red, yellow & blue

Reading time, guided tour, and workshop.

What do the colors do to us and the art? What colors make us happy? We read the story of little yellow and little blue. Afterward, we look for colors in the museum's exhibitions. In the workshop, children get a brush, palette, and their own easel and explore the colors in their own paintings.

Red, yellow & blue is best suited for those aged 4-6 years.

To collect

To collect

Reading time, guided tour, and workshop.

We would like to share "gathering experiences" with the children! Most kids collect something. Sticks, stones, marbles, leaves, and so on. At Trondheim Art Museum, we collect art! After reading and guided tours, the children can compose their own exhibitions.

To collect - is best suited for those aged 4-6 years.

What is contemporary art?

What is contemporary art?

Contemporary art is that it often asks open-ended questions and wants us to think and engage around it. What does concept art mean, what is an installation and what is the difference between modern and contemporary art? Can contemporary art make us see the world in a new way? We look at works that are humorous, political, feminist, socially critical, and more. In this dialogue-based tour, we think aloud and reflect with the students about contemporary art.

Identity

Identity

How do we show our identity through photos of ourselves and interiors? In the pictures of photographer Rune Johansen, we find a reality and a vision of Norway that is distant from our everyday experience. The images contrast the many " In our home" photos on Instagram, blogs, television, and glossy magazines. In the walking exhibition, three pictures taken by Rune Johansen are included. They are nice to use as a starting point for many projects and assignments and connected with several subjects such as Norwegian, social studies, and arts and crafts.

Geometry

Geometry

Our surroundings are filled with different shapes: two and three-dimensional, geometric and organic. Geometry aims to give students a positive relationship with mathematics and geometry through a creative and concrete approach. The exhibition features five works of art by artists Annika Borg, Espen Gangvik and Tomasz Ozdowskis. Together with their works of art, students can explore the geometric shapes surrounding us and on which we also depend in everyday life.

The dream of Europe

The dream of Europe

We are facing a moving world. Refugees and migration characterize today's media image. Rune Eraker travels the world photographing people in areas marked by hunger, war, and natural disasters. The photographs in this walking exhibition are taken from two exhibitions that have also become books included in the walking exhibition, Lukten av savn, (The smell of longing) and Drømmen om Europa (the dream of Europe.) This is a walking exhibition with an interdisciplinary perspective, which touches on questions and topics relevant today.

Sculpture and movement

Sculpture and movement

What is a sculpture, and how do different materials affect the shape? We explore the various sculptures in the collection. How have artists portrayed people through the ages? We will engage in conversations about comprehensive techniques and materials. Together we investigate how balance and gravity affect expression. In the workshop, we make small sculptures in motion.

From National Romanticism to Realism

From National Romanticism to Realism

We associate the national romantic landscape with high mountains, bouldering waterfalls, the slender birch, and a rainbow. Perhaps this is the landscape we still associate with a "real" and beautiful landscape? In realism, one wanted to show Norwegian society as it was. Art was supposed to spark debate. We look at classic examples from national romanticism, realism, and the transitions between the eras in the tour.

Reading a picture

Reading a picture

I see, but what do I really see? How do we read a picture? In our everyday lives, visual information surrounds us wherever we turn, but it is not always so easy to know what we are really looking at. The students will learn a concrete approach to reading images a basic Image Analysis. After the tour, we task the students with performing image analysis of the work of their choice in the exhibition, with guidance from one of the museum's mediators. We pick the images apart, break them into clearer images, crack tags and examine details. Once we have found out what the images consist of, we can puzzle them again with a new understanding of the whole.

Traveling exhibitions

Book a free exhibition for primary school! The exhibitions travel without a mediator, but we are happy to come out to your school and introduce how the exhibitions can be used! The exhibitions include guidance, suggestions for assignments, books, and material.
