The Northoaks Art Curriculum:

Young Artists' Programme

A Journey in Artistic Exploration.....


Here in Northoaks Primary School, we believe that every single child has the innate ability to create, enjoy and appreciate art. Most important of all, we believe that everyone has the potential to develop into passionate & confident young artists. This is why we call our art curriculum the Young Artists' Programme


Taking reference from MOE's new 2018 Art Syllabus, our art modules are based on the 3 broad focus areas of 'Self and Immediate Environment', 'Singapore in Past, Present and Future' and 'The World and the Region We Live in'. For each of the modules, students draw inspirations from (MOE-approved) artworks by local and international students and artists and learn art history & theories, and media ranging from oil pastel, paint to ICT art, and create their own artworks.


The Young Artists' Programme aims to develop students with:

i) Visual Inquiry Skills to discover and explore their surroundings.

ii) Confidence, Curiosity, and Imagination and Enjoyment in art making and art discussion.

iii) Awareness and Respect for histories and cultures of key Artworks and Artists in Singapore and the World.


The following are the themes and topics for each of our art modules.

  • To support the holistic development of students in the Aesthetics domain through Music Appreciation

  • To allow students to learn Handchimes, Angklung and Ukulele skills and to appreciate pitch, rhythm and beats through the learning

  • To equip our students with Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and to reinforce the school values of ‘H.E.A.R.T’ (Honesty, Empathy, Appreciation, Respect, Tenacity).
