ArtVenture Programme

As we drive towards helping dyslexics achieve through the various programmes to support them, often dyslexics’ strengths are not accentuated. ArtVenture exists to complement the wide range of academic programmes we have to support our students, to recognise our students’ talents in art and to help them ignite their stories in various artistic forms. ArtVenture aspires to celebrate the uniqueness of art from a dyslexic’s perspectives and be an active voice of positive dyslexia through the use of art.

Objectives
 

ArtVenture – launched in 2016 as a platform for our students to showcase their passion and strengths, apart from their everyday academic pursues.  ArtVenture inculcates mindsets of positive dyslexia to the mass and strives to change the way people perceive ‘disadvantages’ found in having dyslexia to ‘advantages’, through a change of perspectives.

 
 
 
 
Structure
 

The ArtVenture Short Term Programme consists of 10 sessions, 90 minutes each. Each session will be planned to cover the areas shown below:

Learn Art Techniques Students to experiment with colours, form, line, shape, texture and value. An opportunity to explore a variety of creative art materials such as charcoal, oil pastels, watercolour, clay etc. This would
Explore Art Forms and Styles Students to explore art through both 2D and 3D. For example, painting, sculpting, drawing, collage, paper and fabric art, mosaics, and styles like Pop Art to Pointillism.
Discover Artists of the Past and the Present Students will learn about the art of classic artists such as Picasso and Rembrandt as well as contemporary artists such as wildlife artist Mort Solbert and Japanese artist who just had her exhibition here recently in the National Gallery Singapore, Yayoi Kusama.
Develop and Enhance Cognitive and Communication Skills Our art lessons help students build cognitive skills such as concept development, problem-solving, language, history, measurement, critical thinking, fine motor development and many other skills that can contribute to school success. In addition, students will be given a conducive environment to communicate their creative thoughts through their Artworks (to present and explain their artworks to their classmates and instructor).
Create self-awareness and Self-confidence Students make use of their imaginations to express ideas and originality through thought experiments and create unique artworks. These would help to develop self-confidence as their creativity soars.
