… at a glance
The Department of Art & Design was created to enhance all the art and design lessons that operate in the school (from kindergarten to IB, to GCE, to the BTEC Foundation in Art & Design) and the Portfolio preparation section for study abroad.
All our students come into contact with different techniques and materials in order to understand the importance and the vital role played by art and design in our day and age, characterized by strong visualizations. At the same time, they discover innate skills and talents which are highlighted through these courses. We cultivate theoretical knowledge while focusing on personal expression and the understanding of works of art. We also aim at critical analytical thinking and understanding of the international artistic environment.
The Art & Design Programme at our School
The complete Art & Design programme includes various activities, namely:
The Junior Artists section of our Kindergarten is conducted in English within the Afternoon Programme. Children learn by playing with innovative materials.
In Primary School, children work in 3D with clay, wire and papier mâché. They become familiar with the work of many artists and learn that there is no ‘right or wrong’ in art.
In Jr. High School, students learn about the History of Art and Photography, Graffiti, Animation, Technology in Art, Comic Design, etc.
In IB and GCE, students learn about Art History to develop their ideas in depth and experiment with a variety of media and materials.
In the ΒΤΕC Foundation in Art & Design, students take part in specialised workshops by distinguished teachers in the Arts and create Portfolios which are needed for admission to institutions of higher learning.
