Wynberg Boys’ Junior School is committed to offering opportunities so that all its pupils may pursue excellence in all aspects of education – academic, cultural, sporting and service.
Visual Arts allow learners to explore the world through a lens of creativity and imagination. Underpinning the potential of a learners’ creativity, lies a support system and safety net. This supportive space encourages self-expression and self-confidence.
At a foundation level, learners are encouraged to explore the basic concepts of the art elements. As the learners progress to the intermediate phase, the expectation is that learners will gain a greater understanding of these concepts.
Visual Arts are highly important in the development of a child. Tapping into our imagination and the act of creating allows for engagement with problem-solving, a reimagining of the world and non-verbal expression. Art challenges evoke a sense of freedom and potential and allow one to simply feel.
Through the development of artistic skills, emotional intelligence and creativity, the Visual Arts department aim to equip learners with life skills that will allow them to be balanced and well-rounded individuals.
