Learning at Norval Foundation


Norval Foundation’s Learning Centre is an investment into the South African youth where we aim to educate through art. In a world where technology is continuously evolving and replacing everyday skills, we believe creativity is the most valuable skill a person can hold. The Centre therefore exists to provide the practical tools for learners to develop their creative thinking, interpretation, and problem-solving skills to learn self-expression and the confidence that comes with it. These skills, in turn, inspire and empower learners to make better life decisions. ​

Here we enable learners to dive into different topics and emotions and provide them the opportunity to reflect on who they are and what they believe in. The Centre is open to all.

Norval Foundation, through its Learning Centre, is dedicated to providing access to arts among underprivileged communities. Art has been a part of human culture for centuries. It is used to express emotion, communicate ideas and is a tool to pass knowledge from one generation to another.

Our sponsored programme, which has hosted over 7000 learners aims to make all of the benefit of arts education accessible to the South African youth.  Partner with us in our mission to bring this to thousands more over the following years. Every little bit helps
