The Arts Class’s main goal is to promote self-esteem and personal development through art. In an environment of union, sharing and equality we learn to manage our feelings and emotions with deep respect for each one’s individuality.
The art work done also allows for the exploration of fundamental themes for us to live in harmony with ourselves, each other and with the planet.
