Visual Arts

The objective of the Visual Arts programme is to offer students the opportunity to problem solves, think critically, work creatively and take risks. Skills are developed sequentially using a variety of tools, materials, and techniques.

Kindergarten students are introduced to concept development in activities such as: painting, drawing, design, clay, textiles, collage, murals, mixed media, sculpture, masks, puppets, and printmaking.
 

Primary students examine the principles of composition, including rhythm/repetition, movement, contrast, balance, emphasis, and variety. The elements of line, shape, colour, space, texture, value, and form are explored.
 

Junior/Intermediate students examine the principles of composition, including rhythm/repetition, movement, contrast, balance, emphasis, and variety. The elements of line, shape, colour, space, texture, value, and form are explored at a progressively more advanced level. Art history is integrated throughout the programme. The principles of composition, elements, and concepts of the Masters are studied and applied to student work.
