Arts and Crafts Education

Through Art, it is our aim to educate our students to be creative, self-confident, productive, and aesthetically developed individuals. Although Art is a field that is considered within the whole of general education, it has its own educational laws and methods. In this course, our students express themselves in the process of perception, thinking and physical actions.

For this reason, Arts and Crafts education at Near East Primary School is not just for show or to pass time but actually a serious and productive activity.

Our Principles:

  • Every child is creative.
  • Every child has individual differences.
  • In practice, two- and three- dimensional studies are given.
  • Our lesson is not considered to be a field of continuous practice of other lessons.
  • They are interesting.
  • Harmful factors are avoided.
  • Our lessons are appropriate to our students’ levels and needs.
  • Theoretical information is given during the study.
