The Talent Managing Work of the Balaton-Felvideki Szin-Vonal Primary Art School
Baranyai, Valeria
Gifted Education International, v29 n2 p186-193 May 2013
In recent years, art education has been recognized as a suitable tool for enhancing emotional intelligence and nurturing a child's creative development. However, it seems that the education of art has lost the race against other primary school subjects, with only a minimal number of lessons being taught. The establishment of the afternoon art school system was a major step forward in Hungarian education. The school-building process has escalated all over Hungary, giving an increasing number of students the opportunity to engage in art education. Talent management has been a priority in public education since 2008, greatly supported by civil initiations. This article describes our school, the Balaton-felvideki Szin-Vonal Primary Art School, and provides a summary of the structure and functions of Hungarian elementary art education, the basic principles of our school, the school's activity in art education, and the school as a talent centre and reference institute.
