"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."-Pablo Picasso
Art at Neev is a serious programme. Even older children first draw and then write. Somehow the world takes away this ability in later years. Art starts early with an exploration of color and advances into an understanding of art from around the world, developing children's own innate style over the years. Much of this is evident in our environments. We all know a picture says a thousand words, so children begin to make meaningful marks to express, much before they can write.
Each Neev branch has a dedicated art studio where children are encouraged to express their creativity using a variety of mediums and materials. Children are encouraged to explore materials and are also taught how to work with different mediums which is called 'skilling' as children are taught the required skills. At Neev, art is about enjoyment just as much as participation and pieces are displayed in a gallery-style area, giving fellow students and families a chance to enjoy an exhibition of artwork from students of all ages.
