VISUAL ART – PAINTING

Painting is a form of creative expression where paint is applied to a surface. An experimental approach is encouraged using a variety of painting media and surfaces. Painting can be an expressive act, a narrative, an abstraction or an observational encounter. We strive to create the opportunity for learners to recall their unique viewpoints and thereby to capture new experiences in their paintings.
