Visual Arts


The Visual Arts program enables all children from Prep to Year 6 to participate in artistic experiences that foster individual creativity as they explore expressive, creative and communicative forms that reflect their own ideas and the world around them.The program is organised into 2 dimensions, creating and making and exploring and responding. The creating and making component of making art work involves the children using their imagination and experimentation of materials in open-ended or teacher originated activities applying art elements, skills and techniques, equipment and technologies to complete original and interesting art works.


The exploring and responding component encourages children at all levels to respond to their own art work and art works of those around them. The children are encouraged to participate in discussions about the content, techniques and materials used in artworks, using arts language and to think about where these artworks fit into our history.


All students receive a one hour lesson of Art per week.


Our new art room provides a warm, inviting space that encourages an atmosphere of personal satisfaction artistically while working with and appreciating the achievements of their peers.


The children’s work is displayed around the school and each child is encouraged to keep their work in an art book which is sent home at the end of the school year.
