Education

LNM offers a wide range of education events that enables different experiences with art for different visitor group. A large part of our events can be held in English on request.

LNM Forum is a series lectures, events and discussions that addresses different topics relevant to contemporary Fine Arts in general and the art of painting in particular, suitable for both artists as well as a general audience. LNM Forum discusses artist’s professional, material and political situation.

Artist talk is a conversation between a moderator and the artist/artists behind the exhibitions at LNM. The conversations form new perspectives on the exhibition and opens up for participation by the visitors.

Art break is an informal gathering during working hours, where the artist will give a dialogue-based tour of the exhibition. LNM’s dialogue-based tours are offered kindergartens, elementary, secondary and high school.

The eye of the beholder is LNM’s educational workshop for children in kindergarten. With the exhibition as a basis, we form a workshop that allows the children to explore the art and express themselves in cooperation with an educator. The aim is to experiment and set the mind free. LNM workshop can be adapted to different age groups and it uses recyclable materials.

School classes are also offered a tour with the gallery manager. We encourage those with special  interests to contact the gallery directly to make appointments for special events. The tours are dialogue-based and aimed at the specific age group.
