Visual Arts at SCAD World School will strive to develop students’ aesthetic, creative, imaginative and critical faculties. This aim will be achieved through the implementation of a coherent, well balanced program, starting from the primary grades and going through the Middle School years and right up to the completion of High School. Owing to the programme structure students will develop a sense of awareness with the outside world through art and design.
Collaborative curriculum will provide connections between visual arts and other courses and will increase their interest in other subjects like science, language art, math, music and computer. Students will learn to analyze artists’ works and be able to talk about them. Students will explore drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media, art history, graphic design, CI design, photography, collage, illustration, editorial design and poster design.
Students will be encouraged to carry sketchbooks and to develop planning, self evaluation, and art portfolios. Completed art work provides students with a sense of accomplishment; their creations prepare them for their transition to other art forms.
