Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Department at Mazapan School offers students various experiences with the visual arts that enables them to understand different ways in which cultures have represented reality from ancient times to modern times.

In the Art Department three main skills are developed and strengthened:

  • Creativity,
  • Visual perception
  •  Aesthetic sensibility 

These aspects encourage students to assume various attitudes towards their own learning, using their imagination to generate their own points of view, and develop a sense of respect for cultural diversity and commitment to the fine arts.

Art Class

To achieve this goal, the student practice different techniques that allow them to express themselves artistically, enjoying the experience of being part of an artistic environment, developing a critical judgment for the appreciation of artistic productions and the understanding that the artistic universe is deeply linked to the social and cultural life of one’s society.
