Visual arts fully integrate into all aspects of the curriculum. Basic expressive methods of drawing, coloring, painting, and constructing allow each student to discover his or her creative ability through the introduction of color exploration and composition.
Starting with the Primary division, Turning Point School employs two established and effective teaching techniques for music education. The Orff Schulwerk method is based on singing, chanting rhymes, clapping, dancing, and keeping a beat on any object a student can find. It allows for expression and experimentation without being bogged down in the technicalities of learning instruments. The Kodaly method focuses directly on singing and developing "inner hearing", rhythmic co-ordination, and a sense of harmony. These fundamental skills are developed before the introduction of reading or writing music. In our program, Orff Schulwerk and Kodaly are used in tandem so that students can realize their expressive potential without becoming discouraged by technical difficulty.
