Artist Development Programme

Artist Development Programme

 

About the Programme

Launched in April 2011, the Artist Development Programme (ADP) is a signature programme that aims to uncover artistic talents in students and develop their potential. Under ADP, professional artists are engaged to work with talented students to nurture their talents.

Students whose works are sold get a royalty payment from Pathlight School. This helps both students and their families to recognise the value of how their talent if properly honed and supported by good work habits, will give them a chance to have a dignified source of income. Visit The Art Faculty to view our students' products.

Artists in ADP are also given opportunities to be involved in public exhibitions where they learn to promote their art to the general public. To date, 37 students, each with their own special style and art forms, have been identified and put into this programme.
