VIS offers Visual Arts as part of the curriculum, for all age levels. Art encompasses all the developmental domains in child development, therefore teaching art in school is of great importance. Being creative is a useful skill in any field, not only in art and as Picasso said, all children are naturally artistic and creative. Through Visual Art, children explore their creativity and learn different fun games that help them stay creative with time.
In art class, students find a new way of expressing themselves by learning a language that doesn’t require words. They learn that such things as mistakes do not exist in art, each accident on the canvas can be a good starting point for a new project. They also learn an important truth: to make a mark on canvas is to open the door of possibility to be moved profoundly and to move others. That is what art is all about.
Art class combines creative thinking and improving observational representation through different themes or games. Students are encouraged to communicate personal experiences, thoughts, feelings, observation or records of people, places or things in their artwork.
Learning about artists and their work is also an important aspect that help students enrich their knowledge.
