Marres develops art education for and in collaboration with schools at all levels. The projects are centered on training of perception. In programs at school or at Marres pupils and students discover the sensory knowledge contemporary art can provide. Marres encourages children and adolescents to explore this physical knowledge in own way – standing up, lying down, smelling – and reflect on their observations through drawing, theater or video.
Marres welcomes teachers with their classes or individual visits by students, but we also bring projects to schools. In addition, we welcome schools to develop with us custom-made programs that cater to their specific needs. With these programs, we are not restricted to the art curriculum, but also invite other disciplines such as languages, philosophy, geography, history and chemistry.
