Design and Inspiration

“All tradition is change,” as Barbro Klein writes about Scandinavian folk art. Vesterheim classes in Design and Inspiration invite students into this conversation about how the treasury from folk art’s past can influence, shape, and even catalyze artistic expressions in the present. Classes in this category feature guided, in-depth encounters with curated selections from the Vesterheim collection and encourage students to express something new and authentically individual.
