Galleries

The Art Gallery along the centre stairways of the school was created in 2006 by the Art Club as a learning wall on the brief history of Modern Art Movements. It depicts some of the famous art works by the Masters of the various eras such as Vincent Van Gogh & Claude Monet (1870 – 80s), Henri Matisse & Van Gogh (1905-20s), Wassily Kandinsky & Pablo Picasso (1907 – 20s) and M. C. Escher & Salvador Dali (1924 – 1955). These are but, a few of the Masters and their paintings that we want to expose our students to. Along other stairways, selected students art pieces produced during their art lessons are showcased.
