Basic art education
Basic art education is goal-oriented education proceeding from level to level, offered primarily for children and young people. Basic art education gives pupils readiness to express themselves by means of art and to continue their studies in vocational and higher education in their chosen field of art. Basic art education follows either the general or the extended syllabus.
In Espoo, basic art education is offered in architecture, pictorial arts, crafts, music, circus, dance and in theatre. Below are links for websites of basic art education institutes.
