Daily School Programme

The Children’s Art Centre designs and facilitates comprehensive visual art education programmes for 2300 primary school children per year. Learners gain knowledge and experience by exploring a wide variety of media and techniques and developing skills on a weekly basis from Grade R to Grade 7 as well as our FET programme for Grade 10 to Grade 12.

Class sizes are limited to 25 learners and individual progress assessments are reflected in quarterly school reports according to the requirements of the Western Cape Education Department.

Our weekly classes are compulsory for all six of the Primary Schools and two High Schools within walking distance of our Art Centre.

The 8 schools are as follows:

  1. Chapel Street Primary
  2. Holy Cross Primary
  3. Rahmaniyeh Primary
  4. Walmer Primary
  5. Zonnebloem Girl’s Primary
  6. Zonnebloem Boy’s Primary
  7. Zonnebloem Nest Senior
  8. Harold Cressy Senior

In the interest of accessibility our annual school fees for Primary Schools are R65.00, amounting to R16.25 per term per child and for High School students R800.00 per year, inclusive of all materials.
