Curious learners and reflective thinkers are our objectives when we get students to investigate and make connections between the things they learnt in school with the things they observe in their surroundings. Through a series of activities such as game design, learning of colour schemes and art movement, exposure to fashion illustration etc, students experience how Art influences their daily lives and hopefully appreciates and makes sense of Art in relation with the world we live in.
Use of e-Pedagogy for Active Learning
Technology allows for active online learning and discussions. Students get to collaborate and share ideas with their peers. They also get to showcase their works and personal response on a common online platform. Teachers will also be able to provide timely and targeted feedback, individualised for each student.

Museum-based learning is also an integral part of Secondary Two curriculum. They will learn about local artists and how art tells us stories with relevance to the world we live in. Students will learn about Art History Timeline, doodle on famous artists’ styles and also investigate how the perception of Art has evolved together with the world.
At Upper Secondary, students get to experience outdoor drawing and visit museums, as a crucial part of their learning. ‘Let’s Talk About Art’ is a component in which students will build on their observational drawing skills, talk about artworks, explore themes, and engage in critical thinking.
