Ms Deantha says:
I feel so fortunate to share my passion for music with the talented students at Touchstone, where creativity and personal expression are the norm.
Art at Touchstone Academy
We teach art at Touchstone because we believe in educating the whole child. Art provides an opportunity to think in different ways and to explore creativity and imagination. Our goal is to develop an appreciation for artistic expression to prepare the way for life-long participation in visual arts.
Our students learn about works of art, artists, and artistic concepts. They experiment with different media and techniques. Art is also integrated with other subjects to deepen understanding and create richer learning.
