Visual Arts



Find out about all of the wonderful opportunities our school has to offer


We have a very strong Visual Arts programme at Mt Pleasant School, that is supported by fantastic resources and learning opportunities.  Students are provided regular art education as part of their weekly classroom curriculum programmes.

Extension Programmes

Extension programmes are run each year for children who have been identified as having talents in this area. These programmes allow students to participate and celebrate their own and others art. Children are engaged in learning opportunities that extend their knowledge of artists and processes. We encourage Local Artists to visit and be involved in passing their knowledge onto our students.

Art Exhibition

All children are involved in a yearly art exhibition run by the school.  This is a fundraising opportunity, where our school is transformed into an art gallery.  Local and New Zealand artist exhibit and sell their work, alongside the amazing creative work of our talented students.

After School Art

After school art programmes are run by Jo Lougham.  Art classes are held on Tuesdays  in Room 11 from 3 to 4.30pm.

All classes are strongly based on drawing skills using charcoal, dye, pastels and paint.  We cover a fun range of subject matter and complete a piece of artwork every session.

Lessons are suitable for children aged 6 to 12years.
