Creative Arts Programme
The SKIP art programme involves nine primary groups between the ages of 5 and 13 years and two or three secondary groups between 13 and 17 and for many of the participants these classes are the first exposure to art. The lessons taught to primary focus on basic skills and concepts of art. The secondary groups work in a collaborative manner with the arts teacher on concepts such as ownership of work, community arts, and personal development through art, dance, theater and textiles.
