Winter Art Course



Drawing and Painting encourages the mind to observe the world more closely, considering how things are put together and how they work. It lets students articulate concepts that exist only in their imaginations, in ways words just can’t.

Your child will engage within 3 interrelated areas of art and creativity:

✓ Artistic Studies:  Learn the foundations of Drawing and Painting using different media and tools.
✓ Creative Expression: Our art program is designed in a way which not only focuses on the observational -more traditional way of expressing art. We emphasize a lot on the importance of creativity- the ability to think, communicate and express themselves creatively.
✓ Social & Emotional development: Each student will learn how to present and communicate their ideas during end of course exhibition.

Shared classroom resources are included and provided by us. Other personal-use and consumable resources are purchased by the student (read full policy below). Personal material boxes are also available (subject to available stock) ⓘ
