Courses for children and youth

Right from its foundation in 1947, the RSVA has put much emphasis on art education for children and young people. Courses are organized around age groups of 4 to 5 years, 6 to 9 years, 10 to 12 years and 13 to 16 years. In the youngest group there are no more than 6 children, but number of pubils grows as the age goes up with the maximum of 12 pubils in the teenager groups. Courses are held weekly, and are available in some age-groups any day of the week except sunday.
