All grade levels have art classes.
In the elementary visual arts program, students engage in a variety of inter-curricular art activities. Through the four components of reflection, depiction, composition and expression, children learn to see, interpret and make sense of visual stimuli through a whole set of experiences: individual, visual, learning, communication, creative, cultural and environmental.
The secondary visual arts program at TIS provides an environment which supports and nurtures creativity. The focus is on the vital skills of visual literacy. This is achieved via an understanding of the elements and principles of design. Students are given the opportunity to build on existing skills and develop an understanding of new and exciting techniques, processes and ideas.
Visual arts also gives students the opportunity to gain a greater appreciation of the arts of different cultures and historical periods.
Every student takes visual arts from Grade 7-9. As part of the program, they learn painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and computer technology. In grades 10 to 12, students can choose from option courses such as Art and Career Technology Studies.
