THE NEED FOR KICK START ART

KSA’s lessons are not focused on traditional, technical skill; instead, they aim to encourage creativity, problem-solving, self-expression, experiential learning, and play. This focus helps students develop both cognitive skills and deal with the psychological effects associated with displacement and/or socio-economic disadvantages. KSA also takes an alternative approach to teaching that, rather than mirroring the rigid structure of most Myanmar schools, gives students the opportunity to feel and process their experiences. Through this work, KSA wants to ensure the next generation grows up with the benefits of a creative education, thus creating well-rounded leaders.
