Students in Years One to Six participate in a double session (100 minutes) of Visual Art per fortnight, whilst the Preps will attend one 50-minute session per week. In the Visual Art classes children will work with a wide range of materials and equipment encompassing drawing, painting, clay modelling, construction, threads and textiles and art appreciation. All efforts will be made to display children's work on a variety of platforms.
Children will develop skills and knowledge of the arts, explore ideas and respond accordingly. Our passionate Art teachers believe that The Arts provide students with the development of aesthetic awareness and a broad range of cognitive, language, personal and social skills as well as skills used at work and in leisure activities. These provide a range of unique experiences for all students that are essential for their total development. The Arts Program will provide opportunities for all children to experience success and develop a positive attitude.
The program is developmental in nature and based on the Victorian Curriculum. It makes links with the integrated curriculum units including other cultures and values. The children's progress and achievement in the Visual Arts is aligned with the standards in the Victorian Curriculum and will be assessed by two half yearly reports.
