Art @ West Spring Primary School
WPS Art Framework
The aims of an art education are to enable every child to be visually literate and to appreciate art.
In West Spring Primary School, our Art department supports the above mission through the 5‘E’s approach: to provide students with a variety of learning Experiences, Engagement through student-centred pedagogy, Exposure through various famous artists’ artworks, Enrichment through termly modular programmes as well as Exhibitions as platforms for showcase of talents and efforts.
Infusing PLAY in Art Lessons
Learning through PLAY (Purposeful Learning Activities for the Young) is infused in the art curriculum. Art lessons are conducted based on the three domains of PLAY; object, physical and dramatic. For example, students will be able to work with a variety of materials for their object play, capturing the earth’s textures through their physical play and lastly, creating puppets and role-playing for their dramatic play.
Exploring Great Artists
Students are also introduced to famous local and international artists, such as Georges Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh, Chen Wen Hsi, Anthony Poon and Iskandar Jalil.
Look at how inspired the students are after learning more about the various artists!
Art in Our School
To motivate students and instil in them a sense of appreciation for the Arts, students’ talents and efforts are showcased in holistic learning spaces around school.
