Visual art

The Visual Arts program at Aldridge endeavours to equip our students with the ability to think critically and creatively.  The learning experiences we offer involve students in the process of creative and innovative problem solving, in addition to the acquisition of technical skills.  The arts offer students the opportunity to develop their creative and expressive potentials and aesthetic understandings.
