Look forward to a close and intense school life, where there is emphasis on freedom to develop and respect for others as well as for the group as a whole. There is space for displaying skills and peace for absorption and development. Our teachers are well trained in their subjects, and there is a possibility to receive study and existential guidance.
The art subjects prepare students for further work in design and art institutions. The Art Academy’s Design School, Bornholm, (previously known as the Glass and Ceramic School) is located in Nexø.
We have a close and intensive school life, with emphasis on freedom of expression and respect for others.
