Nurturing creative minds

The Visual Arts program at St Mary Magdalen’s aims to foster problem solving, critical thinking, risk taking, responsibility and an appreciation for art.

Students learn to communicate through their art, respond to the artworks of others and gain appreciation from well known artists. Where appropriate the activities provide cross curricular links and are integrated with other curriculum areas.
