Visual Arts at SJK



The Visual Arts Department is an exciting environment that is designed to focus on the intellectual and creative development of the individual. Studio courses provide a challenging environment to study design concepts, aesthetics, drawing, painting, video, photography, digital media, sculpture, printmaking, and installation as a basis for creative practice. Visual Arts emphasizes a strong commitment to the social, cultural and theoretical issues embodied in contemporary art practice. Ms. Catherine Paleczny teaches visual Arts in the Upper School, an internationally and nationally recognized artist who creates exhibits and public sculptures worldwide.

Co-Curricular Visual Artists

For students who do not study visual art but still wish to participate in co-curricular visual arts activities, there are opportunities to assist with poster design work for School events, set design and painting in conjunction with a drama production, mural painting or the creation of one-of-a-kind art objects used in School fundraising events.

Student artwork is proudly exhibited throughout the School, and more formally in annual exhibits such as the Arts Around Us event held each spring, as well as a graduating exhibition for students in the IB Diploma Programme.
