Art Education

Art Education

Vuotalo provides a varied programme of art education for children and young people. A range of participatory projects and workshops are also offered to other target groups.

Cooperation with day care centres and schools forms the basis of our operations. Information on activities directed at schools is sent directly to the contact persons of day care centres and schools. Ask your teacher if you want to know more!

Vuosaari House also organises cultural courses for children and young people in the evenings and during school holidays. The courses are free of charge.

Additionally, we offer gallery workshops, urban farming and the building of community-based works of art. These activities are open to all. Projects change from season to season. Follow us on the web, Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date!

We also welcome ideas for content and suggestions for cooperation.
