Maryland International’s creative arts and crafts program allows pupils to explore and experience the world of art and artists with emphasis on art production, knowledge of historical and cultural contexts, critical and aesthetic responses to works of art.
In our lower basic and Pre-kindergarten, emphasis is given to one of the intentions of making art: to communicate ideas. Classes also focus on where artists in the past and present, get their images for drawing and painting. Pupils are encouraged to use their memory, imagination, and observation techniques to create works of art. Maryland Pupils are also introduced to colour theory (primary and secondary colours) and elements of art (line, shape, texture, etc.) Maryland’s International Upper basic pupils continue a strong learning relationship between art history and art production while exploring dissimilarity between portrait, landscape, and still life art.
