The major goals of the Art Program at Whitby:
- Experiment with different techniques and materials while understanding the principles and concepts of art.
- Through the creative process, students will learn how to control materials and use different tools to achieve specific qualities.
- Students in the Upper School identify and apply art skills, as well as use vocabulary of the various elements.
- In the Units of Inquiry, art is not seen as a linear process thus students experience it through observation, experimentation, reflection on existing artwork, practice and development of techniques.
