The Saga Project

The Saga Project aims to develop children’s art pedagogy.

Early childhood art education is an integral part of basic education of the Arts as all later learning will be built upon this foundation. Art schools wish to develop children’s art pedagogy as almost half of their pupils are aged between 1 and 8 years.

The skills of art teachers are also needed in cooperation models between art and primary schools.

The Saga Project is coordinated by Porvoo Art School and has 9 participating art schools, one architecture school and a handcraft school. The project has been realized in collaboration with the Reggio Emilia Association of Finland and the Finnish Association of Art Schools for Children and Young People. The Saga Project has received funding from Osaava Programme for the year 2017.
