Welcome to Nome kulturskole – Municipal School of Music and Arts.
Nome kulturskole is a public service institution which aims to give all children the opportunity to learn visual and performing arts. Nome kulturskole strives to be a community center of the arts.
We offer instruction on a variety of instruments and other areas of arts like visual arts, theatre and dance (individually or in small groups) on a weekly basis throughout the school year.
Students are given regular opportunities to share what they are learning in performances and exhibitions both inside and outside of the school.
Nome kulturskole manages “Den Kulturelle Skolesekken”- a program where the public schools are offered concerts, art projects, music projects, movies etc performed and instructed by professional artists.
In cooperation with Ulefoss samfunnshus (Municipal Cultural Centre) Nome kulturskole manages «Barnas Hjerterom» – a program offering professional theatre project to preschool children.
