Art Curriculum

The art curriculum of our school is designed on the basis of children’s developmental stages. It incorporates a diverse range of activities, including creating artwork in different forms using different mediums. We teach children basic art knowledge and connect art to their everyday life to develop their aesthetic sense and art appreciation skills. We believe that art education is indispensable for children’s whole-person development. Influenced by art, children are able to develop an interest in art, demonstrate better learning performances in other learning areas, as well as develop positive character traits.

 Course objectives:

1. To nurture children’s creativity and aesthetic sense.

2. To develop children’s observation skills and art appreciation skills.

3. To satisfy children’s curiosity about different materials.

4. To enhance children’s fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination skills.


Curriculum planning:

The preoperational stage occurs between the ages of 2 and 7. In this stage, children build up their experiences of the world based on their own perspective. The art they create is primarily to express their viewpoints. They draw symbols or simple art forms with exaggerated, anthropomorphic characteristics to represent the objects they come across in their surroundings or life experiences. Thus, in our art curriculum, art activities that encourage children to make their own observations are arranged to stimulate their imagination and develop their interest. This involves creating art using a rich variety of art mediums and learning to appreciate the work of various famous artists.

We participated in the Mainland-Hong Kong Teachers Exchange & Collaboration Programme launched by the Education Bureau from 2010-2012. We designed curriculum objectives and teaching priorities based on the stages of children’s development in art at different ages.
