ONCE A LASALLIAN

Our SJI International alumni community is 1200 strong, and remains connected globally.

Art develops children’s creative skills, critical appreciation, knowledge of artistic techniques and technologies, and within each child, a unique way of understanding and responding to the world.

Within our Art Studios, creativity and imagination collide, as children discover their inventive, intuitive, and imaginative ability and explore their artistic potential. Lessons provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences through an immersion of an inspired atmosphere – where colour, form, texture, patterns of different materials and processes are used to communicate what they see, think and feel.

Our children develop a mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, graphic design, ceramics, mixed media, and sculpture, through creative experimentation and increased awareness. They learn about the diverse roles and functions of art, craft, and design throughout history, within contemporary life, and across cultures, equipping them for lifelong involvement in, and an appreciation of, the arts.

Curriculum Overview

  • Expressing ideas, emotions, observations, and experiences through two and three dimensions

In Design Technology,  students apply knowledge, skills, experiences, and resources to the development of technological solutions that are designed to meet the challenging needs of individuals, societies, and environments. 

Our students become innovative, adaptable, and reflective as they select and use appropriate materials, design processes, information, and digital technologies to create solutions that consider the short and long term impact on societies and environments.

Our students develop skills, knowledge, and understanding in the following areas:

  • Designing, producing and using products
