Part-time art education is better known by the terms music school and art academy.
Children, young people and adults can register in one of the four areas:
- Visual and audiovisual arts
- The art of the word - drama
Children from the age of 6 can start in one of the four areas: visual and audiovisual arts, dance, music or the art of the word - drama. They can also opt for a cross-disciplinary introductory course which covers at least two areas at the same time.
Each area consists of various grades. For each grade that you complete successfully, you receive a certificate indicating the level you attained.
Part-time art education is education followed during free time. It should not be confused with:
- an art course at the conservatory. This is a higher-education course.
- a study programme in secondary education in art. This is a secondary-education course.
