Creative art at Eerde: Partnership with the Rijksmuseum
2021-06-29 | By Eerde International Boarding School
Eerde’s partnership with the Rijksmuseum offers students an Enriching Educational Experience.
Eerde students benefit from its ongoing partnership through workshops, engaging with artists, exclusive exhibits and exchanges. This experience is enjoyed by students of all grade levels but it is especially beneficial for the International Baccalaureate (IBDP) Visual Arts students.
Since the partnership was established in 2017, Eerde International Boarding School and the Rijksmuseum have collaborated to develop educational programmes which can be integrated into the international curriculum, serving for both IBDP and international middle school programmes.
The curriculum development work done by the Eerde Visual Arts instructor and the educational experts at the Rijksmuseum is of high quality. The collaboration originally produced three curriculum-guided tours. These tours focused on a special combination of Netherlands artwork and history, as seen through an international perspective and dialogue. As the partnership progressed, it has broadened to include other subjects in an integrative, inquiry-based learning approach.
Over the years, students from Eerde have enriched their educational experiences through visits to the Rijksmuseum and participating in several workshops.
Even in these recent times involving COVID measures, Eerde and the Rijksmuseum have found a way to maintain the connection and engagement with students in the form of online workshops during the lockdown period. Through the dedication of the Rijksmuseum educators, Eerde students have just completed a variety of stimulating and interactive workshops featuring Dutch Design and Photography. A wide selection of captivating artworks resulted from these workshops.
Eerde looks forward to continuing this partnership with the Rijksmuseum for the benefit of its international students and enriching their educational experience.
