Training Programme

Participants broaden their artistic skills, practice developing art projects for children in need of healing, learn about the human being and its imbalances and gain an understanding of the value of creative development.

The training focuses on empowering participants to be able to implement healing art classes in disadvantaged communities immediately. 

Over the years our training modules have been refined based on our learning with children and collaboration with others in the development sector.  


After completing our Early Beginnings or Art in Youth development modules, participants qualify to become part of the Community Art Facilitators Network.

Requirements for the completion of a module: 

1. Participation in 8 workshop sessions of 3 hours each.

2. Facilitation of learned skills with a group of at least 7 children from a vulnerable community (of the trainee’s choice) for a minimum of 24 hours.

3. Monitoring and evaluation of community work as taught in training courses

4. Submission of a portfolio of evidence (including learnings, lesson plans, artworks and photographic evidence).
