The Arts @ Grammar
Students studying the Arts at Grammar have the opportunity to experience a range of disciplines.
Through the Arts, students learn to express their ideas, thoughts and opinions as they discover and interpret the world. Here at SCGS we encourage students to reach their creative and expressive potential.
Our Visual Art program offers students an eclectic range of material and conceptual experiences and a diversity of colourful, dynamic learning environments. Students are encouraged to produce art works of developing depth and maturity. They will be given opportunities to create, reflect, challenge, ritualise, collaborate, critique and celebrate.
Our Visual Art students will study the past, unpack the present and look into the future to make images and objects from informed perspectives. Visual Arts learning provides students with opportunities to engage with creative industries and arts professionals. The Visual Art program contributes to the development of a confident and creative individual, nurturing and challenging so they become informed citizens.
