Workshops explained: The Sequential Development of Creativity
Art development applies the same school philosophy of committing to developing the individual’s abilities through specialist tutoring and applying a process of learning using the building blocks of art making. Adult students bring with them a developed personality, personal knowledge, experience and defined opinions that demands individual attention. The sequential development of creativity empowers the student to progress at their own pace through the art leaning journey and progress is often mapped through a sketch book-based annotation approach.
