Porvoo Art School
Since 1985, Porvoo Art School has offered basic art education and advanced workshop studies for around 750 children and young people between the ages of 0 to 19 years in Porvoo and Sipoo. The Art School also organizes weekend and summer courses at which adults also are welcome.
Porvoo Art School teaches a visual language. The work process itself is often more valuable than the actual product. The focus is on developing different visual abilities than just producing works of art. The Art School shows how to use different materials in a variety of ways and teaches the value of your own work as well as the work of others. As one’s own creativity and modes of expression develop, the ability to interpret images and visual culture also expands.
