Fine Arts

Visual Arts

Middle School Visual Arts lessons aim to develop the students’ aesthetic awareness and artistic perspective in the fields of drawing, technological design, caricature, ceramics, and develop skills through diverse interpretations.

We make interactive individual and group activities in our fully equipped studios with art materials. They are designed as art environments that focus on the students’ development. The department allows students to improve their aesthetic awareness and makes them express what themselves through artistic applications.

In visual arts lessons, we enrich the Ministry of Education Curriculum with various art activities, materials and art education applications.

The artistic work our students produce throughout the year are exhibited in various activities in our school.

You can reach the Visual Arts Department in Z54H, extension 6397.

Dance

Education in the art of dance engages the artistic processes of creating, performing and critical analysis. These processes require students to read symbol systems, use critical thinking skills, excel in nonverbal reasoning and communication, exchange ideas, work cooperatively and collaboratively with others, and interact within a multicultural society. More comprehensively, education in the art of dance develops kinesthetic and spatial learning as well as intra- and interpersonal knowledge of self and others.
Art research shows that students who study dance are more

  • Self-motivated, disciplined and focused in their everyday lives.
  • Expressive in their communication of emotions, thoughts and feelings.
  • Creative and imaginative.
  • Able to critically analyze their own work and the work of others.
