Our four principles of art education are creativity, intelligence, self-awareness, and communication.
Artipre is specially designed to provide a rich art education for young children, teens, and adults. Artipre’s philosophy aligns with the National Art Education Association (NAEA), which states:
“Art is one of the most revealing of human activities, as well as one of the richest sources for understanding cultures since the earliest things we know of ourselves are recorded in visual forms and images.”
Artipre believes effective and comprehensive art education helps children grow into creative and innovative thinkers. It encourages the attainment of knowledge, understanding, and skills that contribute to a person’s long-term intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development.
