Main Content Area
In our curriculum, the Arts is a learning domain that draws together related but distinctive art forms. While these art forms have commonalities, they are distinctive in their practices and in their approaches.
Our curriculum focuses on these 4 art forms:
- Visual Arts
This section focuses primarily on the process in making art rather than on the product itself. All students aged 7-12 will be rotated in each of the 4 art forms.
This section focuses primarily on creating a product. Students aged 13-14 will experience 2 different art forms each year, while students aged 15-16 will experience 1 art form each year. Students will be placed in the art form based on ability assessed through the skills building section.
Students will be assessed termly on their competency level in each arts domain through classroom observation.
