The Art Programme provides an environment for students to grow perceptually and cognitively; to develop into creative problem solvers and individuals who can think outside the box. Upper School art experiences are centreed around art history, critique, aesthetics, and art production including the elements and principles of design. In Upper School students are encouraged to choose their own interests and project work.
Visual Arts is cross training for the brain. Students are given the opportunity to develop their skills by doing exercises, which in turn develops their confidence to communicate effectively through visual language. A variety of themes and media are explored as vehicles for creative expression. The programme includes activities that challenge students to develop their creativity and ability to see the world around them, to be open to possibilities.
Not all art activities will result in a product. The artistic process is emphasized, while finished pieces of artwork provide students with "measurable" learning, growth, and satisfaction. These outcomes contribute to the positive concept of self and the personal success of each student.
