What We Believe In
At ArtSparks, we believe that a great education should equip children with skills to handle life’s complexities-skills such as problem-solving, flexible thinking, collaboration, communication, and so much more. We believe that creativity is a critical 21st-century skill for the future with far reaching benefits. And, visual art & design provide rich and diverse opportunities for meaningful learning.
What We Do
Creative Learning Lab - Housed within under-resourced schools, serving children from underserved communities, Creative Learning Labs offer a year-long programme that nurtures children’s creative potential, and fosters 21st century learning and life skills. Carefully designed visual arts-based activities, materials, and resources contribute to this vibrant space for hands-on, experiential, inquiry-based learning.
EdSparks Collective - EdSparks Collective is a professional development platform comprising 12 hands-on sessions for teachers, education non-profit administrators, parents, and more-anyone who engages with children’s education, and interested in exploring the full potential of visual arts and design to enrich learning. The programme offered is intended to build understanding of the various dimensions of arts-based pedagogy, from child development and the arts, to learning theories and their application within classrooms, to developing robust curriculum that is interdisciplinary, and much more.
