PERMANENT OFFER FOR SCHOOLS
OUTDOOR SCULPTURE PARK
The Sculpture Park by the Art Centre Silkeborg Bad is visited all year round. Catch some fresh air, experience the season, see strange works of art, play and eat your food outside with your school or institution.
Take a walk, and explore the many funny and exciting sculptures. Walk through the five gateways, see the giant acorn under the tall trees or feel the patterns on the tattooed tree.
In the park children can play, touch the sculptures and play on the outdoor musical instruments: Krint drum, clap organ, and a so-called "beat-o-phone" that has earned its name because it can take a beating.
Education material: Sculpture guide (printed material)
Children can get a sculpture guide to the works of art in the park. The guide is an excellent point of departure for discovering new aspects of the sculptures and keeping oneself active. The guide is suitable for cooperation in groups because it induces conversation about one's own experience and the possible answers.
The guide has age categories for children of 8-11 years and youths of 12-14 years, respectively.
- The guide is free of charge. Get it at the reception desk
- Clipboards, pencils, etc. are available
- Book the guide in advance for group visits, so it is ready when you arrive
