A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light.

Leonardo da Vinci

Every child is an artist; the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.

Visual Arts

Visual Arts education  aims to foster creativity and artistic expression among students. 

The Visual arts curriculum  consists of six strands:

  • Drawing
  • Paint and colour
  • Print
  • Clay
  • Construction
  • Fabric and fibre.

The current curriculum was introduced as part of the Primary School Curriculum (1999).


If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all.



Pupils are encouraged to explore different art techniques, learn about famous artists, and engage in hands-on projects. Visual Arts education not only develops pupils' artistic skills but also enhances their critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and self-confidence. It is an integral part of the curriculum, providing a platform for all pupils to unleash their imagination and appreciate the beauty of art.



 It's easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.

 Leonardo da Vinci



If you understand a painting beforehand, you might as well not paint it.

 Salvador Dali
