Enabling Great Minds
and Strong Characters

Welcome to the ISR Art Department!

I am Ms. Henebry and am passionate about printmaking, sculpture (sculptural painting), foreign languages and snowboarding. At ISR I teach printmaking in its various forms, ranging from lino cut, cardboard, photo etching, dry point etching on Perspex, mono print, and collograph.

The ISR Art curriculum exposes students to a wide variety of artistic genres, encouraging students to develop self-expression. Skills are taught in a cyclical basis in drawing/painting, 3D, graphic art and printmaking. Photography and stop-motion animation are also explored. Projects include elements of art history and art appreciation.

Art Curriculum

Kindergarten

Art classes in kindergarten & primary school are held several times a week and art projects are integrated into other subjects. Their creative pieces are proudly displayed in the homerooms and hallways.

Grades 1–4

Grades 1–4 have art class twice per week and create art projects in their classrooms, which relate to the themes they learn about in other subjects.

Grade 10

Grade 10 students are prepared for the rigorous IB Visual Arts course in three classes per week. They are encouraged to take on a more mature and independent approach – working in their sketchbook, researching and developing their ideas, and eventually, discovering their own individual themes.
