|Schule der Phantasie
|The Schule der Phantasie is a „school in school“, founded in Bavaria with the purpose to extend art education in elementary school. It is meant, however, not only as complementary offer, but as an alternative to traditional art teaching: For almost thirty years the Schule der Phantasie has been a paradigm for artistic learning.
Its teachers are always fine artists, their central concern is to initiate and accompany the creative process. Moreover, by encouraging children in independent activities the Schule der Phantasie addresses fundamental questions of education and teaching structure. Presented here are some of the multifarious processes in order to illustrate by means of examples the principles guiding the Schule der Phantasie.
