Where should I sit? Furnishing school classrooms as a learning activity
Katja Sudec

Summary:  The current article presents an artistic project to furnish classrooms that involved everyone in a school joining forces with external collaborators. The aim was to update classrooms in accordance with the teaching methods used at the school. The school follows Montessori principles, where interior design influences the so-called hidden curriculum and has a beneficial effect on it. The article analyses this relationship while considering the benefits of actively including children in an artistic experience that is aimed at co-creating a classroom. Therefore, the article also touches on the issue of the significance of including artistic processes in schools and the potential for the two different systems-school and art-to work together.
