The Child to Be an Artist -This month is all about spring and flowers
We set out with the intention of revealing all the artists of the world 5 years ago, we started to present our ‘The Child to Be an Artist‘ program to you in order to enable children to experience their art journey individually, to produce, question and express by discussing with their peers in a group.
Within this unique program, which we have prepared with our experienced instructors in the field of art education; There is a curriculum that covers all the themes and topics that the child reveals through their environment and perception of the world, from ancient times to modern art, from creativity that exists in nature to conceptual art.
In this program, which we have prepared for 4-5/ 5-6/ 7-9 age groups, taking into account their readiness, we establish online art groups with the participation of a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 children. We can present our ‘Child that is going to Be an Artist’ program, which takes place for 1 hour per week, in Turkish and English language options.
