Education Through Children's Art

    Education

What we offer:

  • We offer children and young people a unique opportunity to engage with art made by children and young adults from around the world. Our collection spans 4 continents and encompasses a huge variety of themes.

  • We provide teachers with a creative way to explore curriculum topics and offer a window on different cultures, traditions, and global issues presented through the eyes of children.

  • We give students the opportunity to create their own art in response, under the guidance of art professionals and art educators, as an expression of their own voice.

A new exhibition often emerges from this interaction; a combination of new and existing artworks, an opportunity to celebrate creativity, cultural understanding and exchange, while bringing the school community together.

We are always happy to adapt our projects to meet your school needs and ethos.

We are currently offering a virtual program that supports the Recovery curriculum.

It provides a cross-cultural perspective of one of the most pressing global issues facing our shared planet.
