Beroepskunstenaars in de Klas (bik)

In 2004 Anne-Marie Ros and Lodewijk Ouwens created the concept and pilot training of one year for professional artists to work with art projects in primary schools. After a succesful pilot year of the bik, ran in 7 different places in the Netherlands, the unique curriculum proofed to work.

Besides the national implementation of the trainingsprogram and coaching of the team, Anne-Marie managed the training in Rotterdam. After 5 years 70 artists enriched their professional practise with freelance art projects for kids, it was time for Anne-Marie to focus on new projects.

The training still runs nowadays by among others: Willem de Kooning Academy in Rottedam.
