Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Three teachers from the Children‘s Department at the Reykjavik School of Visual Arts (RSVA) will go to Bergen in Norway for job shadowing. They are professional artists and art teachers and have taught art at the RSVA for many years. Two schools will be visited, Bergen kulturskole and the kindergarten Bortigard Bornehavn. The job shadowing will take five days. The aims are to get to know the teachers at the schools and the variety of learning and teaching approaches in visual arts. Both of the schools use action learning in their work, RSVA implements the method into work with the youngest children. Children aged 0-6 attend the kindergarten Bortigard Bornehavn. Emphasis is on visual arts in the childrens‘ everyday lives. Artists, pedagogues and kindergarten teachers work together towards common aims. It is important for the teachers from RSVA to be able to develop in their work and the job shadowing gives them the opportunity to get to know a variety of learning and teaching approaches in visual arts.The job shadowing will also give the teachers an opportunity to learn more about action learning and experience how the schools use action learning in their work and how it strengthens the activities within the schools. The results of the project will be presented to the staff at RSVA, the city´s extra-curricular board for children´s culture and others who work within these parameters.
