School Programme

Arts education teaches children to communicate with the world using alternative ways, solve problems creatively and encourages personal initiative. Art makes a vital contribution to the development of emotional and intellectual intelligence.

Arts reduce stress level in children and boost their self-esteem. In an art class students use variety of mediums: fabric, clay, paper, paint that inspire ideas and present opportunities for creative expression. Art promotes cognitive development which positively reflects on children’s overall performance in school.
