Aesthetics Department Vision and Mission

Vision

Every Student is An Artiste

Mission

To nurture, develop and inspire students to instill a strong sense of appreciation for the Arts and self manage their emotions and thoughts through the Arts.


Aesthetics Department Framework and LLP

Evergreen Primary School’s Learning for Life Programme(LLP) is in the Arts. The programmes for the LLP is designed using a 2-pronged approach: Learning Through The Arts (LTTA) and Learning In The Arts(LITA).  It aims to create a vibrant arts culture and environment that enhances teaching and learning, facilitates character development as well as develops students’ mastery in the various aspects of the Arts.

The programme structure is based on a school-based framework – ACE.  The acronym ‘ACE’ stands for: Appreciate, Cultivate and Express.

Appreciate – Broad-based learning through assembly programmes, learning journeys to external performing arts centre, arts museums and music & drama performances.

Cultivate – Broad-based milestone level enrichment lessons on various visual and performing arts modules and master classes for talent development in the Arts.

Express – Milestone level performance, performing arts showcase at different levels (i.e. school, zonal & national) and exhibitions. 

Based on the three components in the framework, structured activities are planned and mapped out to provide authentic learning experiences for students through varied platforms, exposures and modes of experiences.

In the segment below, we demonstrate how we make use of the ACE framework to encourage and enhance the arts culture and environment in Evergreen Primary School.


Appreciate

To get students to appreciate the Arts, broad-based learning experiences are planned through assembly programmes, learning journeys to external performing arts centre, arts museums and music & drama performances.

Arts Learning Journeys

All Primary 4 pupils visited the Art Museum for a learning experience as part of our school’s Art Museum Based learning Programme in Evergreen Primary School. Students will be involved in Art appreciation and discussion during the trip. Learning from artworks can bring art alive to our students. It not only makes historical or current events visible but piques students’ curiosity and provides them with relevant topics to talk about, and inspires them to make art to express their ideas. Students engage with subject matter of the artworks (i.e. people, places, objects and events) and art forms, and the background ideas and inspiration of artists and their creative work processes.

Photography using iPads with our Primary 4

With new technology, less people are taking photographs using DSLR cameras. However, that doesn’t mean that we cannot take good photographs. In Evergreen Primary School, our Primary 5 pupils learn photography techniques on how to take a good photographs using the iPads!

What might the future look like? Look at the ideas and innovation of what the future might look like from the paintings done by the Primary 4 pupils!

As the pupils learn about the past and current environment, they were pushed to explore what might the future look like. As the pupils are indeed the future of Singapore, don’t be surprised if you see their ideas, designs and innovations become a reality in the future.



Imagine a future transportation vehicle and make them with 3D pens with our Primary 5!

Create Stop Motion Animation of Science Concepts with our Primary 6 pupils!

Who says that we cannot infuse Art and Science? In Evergreen Primary School, we believe that departments should not work in silos. Thus, the Art Department collaborated with the Science Department to get the pupils to create stop motion animation videos of their Science concepts. With this module, pupils not only learnt the Digital Art skills of creating a stop motion animation, they get to revise their Science concepts at the same time!
