Even at the students' young age we believe their education should be structured and challenging. It is a perfect age to lay the foundation of their class habits, to make them active and independent learners. Every term will teach them so much that they can build on in the future. Basic painting skills lessons will be expanded and developed to improve vocabulary and communication. With targeted activities and tasks the student will further enforce the lessons learned.

This is what the autumn term holds for these budding artists. If you have any questions about the curriculum or course material please do not hesitate to get in touch. Thank you.
