In Visual Arts, the students experiment and develop practical skills and knowledge in various art practices. We work with traditional art forms such as painting, drawing, sculpture and ceramics, as well as photography and filmmaking. Students also explore contemporary art forms such as installations, performance art and use technology for creating electronic artwork.
By studying the history of art, art styles and cultural artworks from around the world, students learn how visual arts often reflect society and can be used to express social or personal statements. Students learn techniques in order to analyze and appraise their own and others artwork. For further inspiration, it is important to visit art exhibitions, museums, Art and Design schools and meet local artists in their studios.
Students are encouraged to continually use their sketchbook to record ideas, interests and develop their artistic abilities. Students also use a process journal to keep an ongoing written record of their artistic development and learning experiences, making reflections and evaluations on their challenges and achievements.
