Creating art yourself, learning about art or just looking at art; simply by just being involved with art, moves boundaries and opens doors. Art education the way for everyone, young and old, to discover new interests and talents. It makes space to increase creativity and expand your experiences.
This is KOO’s mission: making art education accessible for everyone who wants it, even if it is not so easy to get. We do this in different ways. KOO organizes art education for primary, secondary and special schools, for projects and in the midst of our society.
Art education at schools and in projects
Social involvement with the city of The Hague is very important to us. Therefore we have several partners we work with regularly in art projects.
In addition we believe it is important that children and youth in schools can meet established cultural organizations.
For example with the course Ontdek het Orkest (discover the orchestra), that can be purchased by both primary and special-needs schools. In this longer course children from grade 6, 7 and 8 from several primary schools in the city learn everything about the The Hague Residentie Orkest. Every school year the children learn about the orchestra, the instruments and about how it feels to make music and to produce it. At the end of the school year the children from 7th grade participate in the play-along concert and the 8th grade has a conducting project. This way pupils are real musicians or conductors for a performance. Even if it is just for a few moments, they can discover how it is to work as a professional musician from the Residentie Orkest. Everything they have learned the past two or three years can be found in these final projects. For many years Ontdek het Orkest has been a great success for the participating schools, the orchestra and of course KOO.
