Art Education aims to enable every child to be visually literate and to appreciate art. Pupils will go through these 3 domains in their art curriculum; Seeing, Expressing and Appreciating.
Being visually literate, our pupils are able to observe their surroundings, understand and make meaning of what they see.
Pupils will then be able to generate and communicate their ideas by using and creating visuals that they have observed.
In the process of learning to appreciate art, pupils will be able to see the value and recognise the relevance of art in their lives.
Art @ Riverside aims to engage pupils in positive learning experiences where they develop sensory awareness, imagination and visual inquiry skills to discover and explore their surroundings. Pupils are also engaged in art discussion, using See, Think, Wonder, which allows them describe and interpret artworks with appropriate art terms.
The school’s curriculum provides pupils with insights on Elements of Art, Principles of Design, Art Forms, Art Techniques and Art Values. Pupils are also introduced to different types of materials, where they get to explore and experiment with a variety of mediums to create artworks.
