Lower School
Student Life

Artistic Outlets

The visual arts programme is designed to balance a student’s physical life with opportunities for creative outlets.

All Lower School students have the opportunity to experiment with and grow their creativity using a variety of materials and media.

Art classes allow students to use their foundational knowledge of the elements and principles of design to create hand-built ceramic sculptures, produce creative works using digital media, and hone their drawing and painting skills. Students work with art and design teachers who go beyond teaching techniques and art forms by helping students develop the confidence, open-mindedness, and risk-taking that will help them grow as artists and designers, and mature into caring and capable young adults.
