Arts at Norfolk Collegiate 

 

 

Each child and our broader society benefits from a high-quality arts program. At Norfolk Collegiate, we focus on teaching to the individual child, while also responding to the needs of all learners.

The arts can not only enhance a child’s ability to discover how to learn, but it develops skills in critical thinking and imagination, while also sustaining a student’s interest and enthusiasm for school.

Most artistic children are right brained, which is the more sensitive side of our being. The creative arts help to nurture empathy and foster that sensitive imagination through experiences that the arts uniquely provide. The art teachers at Norfolk Collegiate provide many opportunities for students to not only express their individuality as an artist, but to gain recognition in the community through art contests and exhibitions.
