Enhanced Academic Performance

At Sunshine Art Academy we conduct engaging activities every session which involve learning about the work of a particular artist, movement or style. These activities involve team-work, listening, evaluating and expressing new ideas. Several empirical studies acknowledge that children participating in visual learning programs like the academy have improved analytical skills, accelerated maths and reading capabilities and higher social-emotional growth.

Understanding Ourselves and The World Around Us Through Art

Art provides a safe outlet for children to express and process emotions in a reflective, imaginative and creative way. Feelings and ideas can be articulated in multidimensionality, with colours, lines, imagery and movement acting as an impactful tool for communication and understanding.

Maximising Confidence and Combatting Fear of Failure

At the academy, we aim to maximise confidence by removing notions of 'good and bad' or 'right and wrong'. We allow children to take risks in their work without the fear of failure, rejection or ridicule. By removing these preconceptions, children are able to gain a deeper insight into creativity and self-expression, which host a range of benefits in their development.
