Background of the project;
Einar Granum School of Fine Art, is a well-established educational institution in the art field. School history goes back to 1970 and has gained a very high reputation.
All academic staff are practicing artists, and each year a large number of visiting artists, architects and designers arrange workshops and lectures as part of the curriculum.
Most of the staff has been involved as teachers for more than 10-15 years. Many have a teaching competence from other similar art schools and formal pedagogical competence. Each of them runs their own artistic practice with exhibitions both in Norway and abroad, as well as other major art projects in public space. The school has all together a large professional expertise within their own staff. In addition, the school has between 15 to 25 guest teachers every year in different areas of specialization.
