All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.” - Pablo Picasso

 The St George’s Art Department has a strong shared vision. We aim:

  • For all students to pursue the subject to the highest possible level, and all meet their full potential
  • To create curiosity, interest and enjoyment in art
  • To encourage independent learning and self discipline
  • To use the School's location to enhance student learning by visiting museums and galleries
  • To work with a broad range of traditional and new media
  • For all students to learn to appreciate and value images and artefacts across times and cultures, and to understand the context in which they were made
  • For all students to be able to reflect critically on their own and the work of others     
  • For all students to learn to think and act like artists, craftspeople and designers, to work independently and as a part of a team

Our facilities include two large dedicated classrooms, a fully equipped Mac suite and technician support.
