Visual Arts

With Visual Arts, our students are able to observe and understand and make meaning in what they see. They are also able to communicate their ideas by using and creating visuals. This helps students to see the value and recognise the relevance of art in their lives.

We believe that every child should appreciate the Arts as part of the holistic experience in education. We adopt the 3Es approach in Chongfu to create opportunities and platforms for students to showcase their passions and talents in the domain of visual arts, music and performing arts.

We want students to:

Enjoy what they do and learn through our engaging and creative curriculum.

Experience the various art forms, materials, musical instruments and programmes to better understand the world and the region they live in.

Excel in these areas that they are passionate about.
