Visually Inspiring Artistry

For those with a passion for visual arts, our Culture Department offers a diverse range of artistic disciplines, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and mixed media. Our art rooms provide a nurturing environment for students to experiment, develop their skills, and unleash their imagination. From traditional techniques to contemporary styles, our art program encourages artistic exploration and self-expression.

Benefits

Below are just a few reasons why art should be included and the benefits of a well-taught artistic program.

  • Motor Skills: Many of the motions involved in making art, such as holding a paintbrush or scribbling with a crayon, are essential to the growth of fine motor skills in young children.
  • Decision Making: According to a report by Americans for the Arts, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of life.
  • Visual Learning: Drawing, sculpting with clay and threading beads on a string all develop visual-spatial skills, which are more important than ever. Even toddlers know how to operate a smart phone or tablet, which means that even before they can read, kids are taking in visual information.

Special Achievements

Lusitânia Primary School has participated for the past three years in the Czech International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts. There are over 70 countries that enter this exhibition, with over fifteen thousand entries in this category. Lusitânia sent out fifteen pieces of 2-D artwork from different grades to the Czech Republic. This year we are proud of results as always, in particular one of our Grade Six pupils, Star Marasha was awarded an Honorable Mention for her piece, “Uses of Fire.”

Well done Star!
