THE YOUNG ARTISTS’ PROGRAMME: A UNIQUE ART EXPERIENCE FOR PUPILS
Our school has a unique Visual Arts Curriculum called the ‘Young Artists’ Programme’, which was created by our Art Coordinator, Mr Ang, in 2014. The programme develops students’ artistic skills by exposing them to 20 Young Artists modules over the course of the 6-year period in the school. For each of the modules, students draw inspirations from the styles of the great artists, art history & theories, and media ranging from oil pastel, painting to ICT art, and create a series of artist-inspired artworks. As they journey on through each of the modules, it is hoped that each and every single pupil would develop into passionate & confident young artists.
