To provide a holistic education that fosters self-assured and self-directed learners, concerned citizens, and active participants. Aesthetics to the Visual Art department at QtPS are critical in stimulating cognitive development and encouraging innovative thinking and creativity. This aids kids in forming meaningful connections with their surroundings. Artistic expression encourages students’ inventiveness, and revealing their uniqueness boosts their self-confidence. As a result, their desire to study.
The pedagogical strategy of inquiry entrenched in our weekly art lessons in our art curriculum. It can see in the structure below:
Students introduce existing artworks and artists connected to the subject to connect and wonder.
Students are introduced to everyday objects/unusual mediums to investigate and experiment with, guiding them to make decisions while creating art.
Term modules with short exploratory tasks allow students to interact with various creative mediums, allowing them to gain experience and confidence in creating their final artwork.
When students’ voices are capture in their final artwork, gallery walks art lectures make studying more relevant for them.
Through music-making and improvisation, cultivate each student’s musical creative spirit. The music classroom is a natural setting for instilling school values, developing social and emotional competencies, and honing critical and imaginative thinking abilities will better prepare our kids to succeed in a rapidly changing world. Through music-making and improvisation, QtPS Music department strives to improve each student’s potential for creative expression, confidence as a learner, and appreciation for music from diverse cultures. We organise music skills and knowledge by the GMP Music syllabus focusing on improvisation. Our music courses follow the Experience-Concrete-Application (ECA) method allows students to practise a new skill or instrument in a hands-on setting before learning to understand it.
