Our Philosophy

The Aeoncademy Philosophy and Services

Aeoncademy develops its specialised programs with the needs of creative thinking and skills, imaginative problem solving and adaptability clearly in mind.

We have a strong belief in the innate gifts and talents of all children!

Our specialised programs introduce creative modalities spanning the visual arts, drama and historical make-believe.
We infuse these programs with themes drawn from history, myth and legend, nature and other cultures, being sure to leave considerable scope for the imagination to play its part.

“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up” – Pablo Picasso
