Artists In Arks

The Artists in Arks programme involves teaching art skills to 100 children on a weekly basis. The children are aged between 6-16 years and attend the class for two hours twice a week. The trainers have formed a good strong relationship with the Ark Managers and children from each Ark.

Chris Molefe, Phillip Mabote and Ramaruta Makoba have all received training and are all graduates of APS. They are the main trainers and mentors to our recent graduates Clement Mafora, Dzunisani Maluleke and Lesego Mangologa. Collectively they all teach art at their respective Arks, while incorporating role play, drama and activities that require the children to work together as a group.
