It aims to develop well-rounded and well-informed art talents in a conducive environment that promotes creativity. Besides regular lessons, visits to art galleries and museums are also organised to expose Schillerites to the experience of art viewing and appreciation. Hands-on activities outside the classrooms are also arranged to broaden their authentic experiences as artists. Schillerites in the programme will develop intermediate level skills in craft types such as drawing, painting, illustration and photography, as well as gain literacy in print and designs. They will also learn about the history of western and tribal art.
