Educational models

I was looking through the Schome site:
and I found some info about various educational models. The ones below each ring true in some way with our version of art education.
Autonomous education
Experiential learning
The KPM approach
Multigrade schools
Problem base learning
Reggio Emilia

This last link contained a particularly relevant chunk:
"The school environment is designed so that every part has its own purpose and identity and spaces encourage communication through interaction. The piazza (communal areas) and atelier (art studios) are considered the core of the schools."

Communal areas and art studios? Sounds familiar.
