Students create visual representations that communicate, challenge and express their own and others ideas. Visual Art supports ability to recognize and develop cultural appreciation of Visual Arts both past and present contents through exploring and responding to artists and their artwork.

As Art is all around, through shape, colour, texture, patterns and lines, students can expand on these elements to create some individual masterpieces.
