Koorenhuis, art education

Koorenhuis is the institute for art education for everyone in The Hague. Koorenhuis facilitates a network of freelance teachers (either working independently or as a part of a collective) providing lessons and courses in music, theatre, dance, visual arts and photography.
We offer art education programmes and comprehensive learning pathways for both primary and secondary schools in The Hague. In cooperation with various partners in the city, such as social and care institutions, Koorenhuis realizes special art projects in The Hague. Koorenhuis..... also where you do not expect it.


open-dag-web-20140621-19.jpgThe lessons and courses presented on this website are given by a select group of highly qualified teachers who form Koorenhuis Network. Combining the teachers' forces has enabled the Koorenhuis foundation to present a comprehensive range of courses in all art disciplines. Our website caters to the needs of everyone in The Hague (and outside). Each course description contains information about the course provider and/or teacher. The teacher is responsible for communication and appointments with the participants. The teacher will also provide practical information about e.d. course fees, location, duration and hours.

Projects with partners

Art education should be available to everyone. That is what we stand for and we give it our all. But we cannot do it on our own. That is why Koorenhuis is collaborating with various partners and is looking for new alliances. We would like to get in touch with partners, both big and small, who feel strongly about The Hague and are interested in creating opportunities for young talents and special people living there.

We are proud of our teachers!

Koorenhuis works with about 120 professional art teachers who either have accredited teaching qualifications or have many years of teaching experience enabling them to teach at a professional level. A large percentage of our teachers combine teaching with a career as a practising or creative artist. These teachers give lessons at 25% of the primary schools in The Hague.
