Beginning in grade 1, a range of enrichment classes taught in French by specialist teachers punctuate the day: Visual Art, Physical Education, Theater, Library, and Music. Digital technology is integrated into the curriculum.
The art class is taught in French once a week from grades 1 to 5. The aim of artistic education is to encourage students to develop their sensitivity and creative capacities, discover works of art and grasp artistic processes. Children are encouraged to experience a variety of media (instruments, materials, supports), combine elements, attempt to establish associations, improvise, experiment, gather information and create.
The study of fine arts is defined by using simple malleable techniques with various instruments conducted on a variety of materials and supports such as paper, cardboard, canvas, wood, plaster, clay, etc.
Visiting museums and art galleries give students other opportunities to view artistic works.
