      has developed its unique Art-with-a-MAP curriculum.                                                                                     All programs utilise our art-maps designed to develop visual art knowledge and to rapidly advance painting and drawing skills.               Our students research and develop their individual ‘art projects’ derived from their own interests as well as broader art themes, styles etc.The Art Maps are universally implemented and appreciated throughout studioMAP.
