OUR AIMS

Up Holland High School offers an inclusive, modern, and innovative learning environment that grants every student opportunity to promote creativity, self-expression, resilience, and build self-confidence through the visual Arts.

Up Holland High School offers students a range of learning activities that develop their understanding and appreciation of different approaches to the arts.

Students are encouraged to enrich their cultural capital by reflecting on the context of Art work and its place in society both historically and currently. This is achieved by understanding the work of many visual art movements and historical forms of Art from European Impressionism and Exressionism to more modern approaches such as Pop Art and Street Art.
