It empowers students to cultivate their creativity, critical thinking, and technical skills across a variety of artistic media. Through the study of art history, exploration of diverse cultural influences, and engagement with contemporary art practices, students develop a deep understanding of visual language.

The course encourages students to express personal perspectives, fostering a lifelong appreciation for the arts while preparing them for further study or careers in creative fields. Assessment includes a portfolio of studio work, a process portfolio documenting artistic inquiry, and a comparative study that explores connections between different artists and cultures.
