The visual arts program is a natural extension of the classroom. The art room has a pleasant and friendly atmosphere and students make good use of it to pursue their work in drawing, painting, printmaking, and photography. The ceramics facility is also available to the students where beginners and experienced potters can try their hand at the wheel.
Students who create artwork have many opportunities to display their work in the school, in the display areas throughout the classroom block, Learning Commons foyer and the Richard Hayman Gallery. Students are also exposed to artwork through attending art tours in Peterborough.
Art classes are regularly supplemented by visiting artists, who bring their knowledge and expertise to the classroom. Artists usually work on specific projects with the students over a period of time, giving feedback and helping shape final products.
Outside the school day, there are a variety of clubs students can join to extend their artistic experiences beyond the classroom. Anyone is welcome to join and participate in the Art Club and Photo Club. For those interested in graphic design, the Yearbook Club offers a great opportunity to develop design skills in a team of staff and students working together to produce the school's annual yearbook.
