Our two-year contemporary art program at senior school is a serious study of the cultural role and language of the visual artist. A series of films featuring artistic perspectives and philosophies encourage students to think critically about the ‘visual form’ of ideas. Teachers are trained to use un[BOX]: A Workbook on Contemporary Art that lays out lesson plans and enquiry-based learning projects for students.
Students learn about the use of digital technology and mixed media in art. The methodology involves the use of images, films and projects to facilitate discussion. The objective is to help students understand that contemporary art is part of a cultural dialogue that focuses on personal and cultural identity, family, community, and nationality. Such engagements underline the cross-disciplinary nature of art.
Our art services include setting up art libraries, art labs, and assisting with teacher placements.
