The Project

American Friends of SMK and Area9 Lyceum have partnered to increase art knowledge with an adaptive learning course on the Danish Golden Age. 

Access to lifelong learning is being driven by rapid technological developments and can help building knowledge across a wide range of topics. We are pleased to provide access to art and art history with this collaborative course, using adaptive learning technology. This technology can help improve learning at all levels, regardless of each individual's level of knowledge and background.

American Friends of SMK raises awareness and appreciation of the collection and the special expertise that characterize Statens Museum for Kunst (National Gallery of Denmark), encourages exchange of art, skills and knowledge between SMK and American institutions, and fosters support for SMK globally.

SMK - The National Gallery of Denmark

SMK - The National Gallery of Denmark is the largest art museum in Denmark and is also officially the so-called ‘main museum’ for visual art in the country. SMK owns the nation’s largest art collection, comprising approximately 260,000 works of art. The collection was originally founded as the royal collection, meaning that it was the private property of the Danish kings, but with the introduction of democracy in Denmark in the mid-1800s, the kings’ art collection was given to the people.That gift eventually became Statens Museum for Kunst (SMK).
