The Visual Arts curriculum at Metropolitan School Frankfurt enables students to develop their creativity and imagination through a wide range of activities encompassing the areas of pattern and texture, colour and shape, form and space and line and tone. Students become keen observers of their environment by identifying principles of art and design in the world around them. As the students follow the curriculum they develop their skills and improve their control of materials, tools and techniques.
From the earliest years, students are taught singing and rhythm activities and the language of music. They learn about composers and listen to a wide variety of repertoire linked whenever possible to the Units of Inquiry. Music-making activities are a very important part of our programme. Students experience music, dance and drama on a rotational basis throughout the year. They are given opportunties to express themselves in a variety of differentiated opportunities and to perform in front of their peers and the wider community.
Secondary school students attend music, drama and visual arts classes weekly to further specialise in these important subject areas. Our fully equipped music room, with keyboard laboratory, visual arts centre and drama suite further complement the excellent opportunities provided by our experienced and specialised educators.
All students are encouraged to be a part of the numerous musical ensembles and bands across MSF. Private music tuition is available in piano, strings, woodwind and brass is available to students of all grades.
