Images and meaning-making

    How do we come to understand the meaning of art? To what extent are we part of the meaning we attribute to an art work?

    What do images tell us about the time in which they were made? The answer depends on how, when, and why we look at the art.

    In this Learning programme, we focus on selected art works from the Louisiana collection and make time for each artwork. The session starts off from our immediate experiences with the art works and move on to pictorial analysis, narratives and creative experiments to expand our understanding of the works. This theme offers useful tools that can be applied in the encounter with art onwards. 

    We offer 1 and 2-hour learning programmes in the exhibition. The programme is adapted to age and learning level and takes place within the exhibition with dialogue, sketching and process writing. In the 2-hour sessions the second part of the session is a practical workshop where we create mixed media collages and give our own interpretations of the experienced art works.

    Learning programme for primary school anchored in the Louisiana collection on pictorial meaning.
