Nature, Landscape – Paper, art workshops for 200 young people at Trappegalleriet

4. oktober 2021By Karen Land HansenCommissions

200 young people from schools and courses in Nakskov participated in the project Nature, Landscape – Paper. They spent the day at Trappegalleriet beginning with conversations about the human interventions in other parts of nature and landscape in relation to the art works on show. After the initial conversations in the gallery we continued to work outside, making performative exercises in ‘Indrefjorden’ centered on elements of nature. Finally the young people participated in two workshops, sculpting in paper pulp and drawing.

The project was supported by The Danish Arts Foundation, Lolland City Council and Trappegalleriet.
