The benefits of art education

ArtStar’s programme focuses on art EDUCATION, not craft, so current educational ideas and research in art education form the basis of the curriculum. In accordance with this, Michelle and her Team plan and provide art activities that are relevant and interesting to all children. They aim, as much as possible, to meet individual needs and to remain CHILD-CENTRED in their approach.

As they experience and learn about creative thinking through art, children are taught practical and technical skills in developmentally appropriate learning episodes and time frames. It is ArtStar’s belief that creativity cannot flourish without scaffolding and support from qualified art teachers.

ArtStar Studio’s classes are run during school term time and feature multi-age groupings. Each class group works on different projects which are never the same. The resulting artworks are curated and hung in our purpose-built ArtStar Gallery.

Classes are two-hour sessions, with a 15-minute break in between. The classes are all-inclusive in terms of tuition and materials costs. Each class group is staffed by two art-trained teachers and usually a junior teacher aide.
