STREET ART EDUCATION PROGRAMME
Nuart’s Education Programme is the largest street art education programme in the world. Across a five-week period it reaches out to over 2,600 children to teach them the basic tenets of street art. This includes its history and origins as well as practical skills such as stenciling and wheatpasting techniques. Devised in partnership with Den kulturelle skolesekken (a Government funded initiative for art and culture), the programme aims to inspire the next generation of street artists, thus ensuring the culture’s sustainability.
Civic engagement through street art
Our teachers visits schools across the Rogaland region with the aim of inspiring and engaging students in street art culture. Street art as we know it today has links to various aspects of visual culture and students are encouraged to consider how street art can serve as a tool for public debate and discourse.
Workshops explore the history and origins of street art as well as allowing students to practice different styles, techniques and modes of artistic expression to produce their own street art ‘piece’. The works created are then presented to the local community or displayed within the school.
Students are encouraged to create portraits, text-based works or Pop-Art style pieces using a range of techniques from stencils and wheatpasting to collaging and freehand painting to name but a few.
For schools in the Stavanger region we provide a guided tour of the Nuart exhibiton at Tou Scene Centre for Contemporary Arts as well as a short guided tour of some of the outdoor works in the area.
Den kulturelle skolesekken is part of the Government's cultural policy and a national programme for art and culture provided by professionals in Norwegian schools.
