Visual Arts

Visual Arts is seen as an integral part of student learning. All students from Pre-primary to Year 12 are engaged in Visual Arts for 2 periods a week in a designated Art room. The program is delivered by Specialist Art Teachers.

Student's creativity is nourished through the creation of a stimulating learning environment and experiences which complement classroom learning. These include an Artist-in-Residence program each year, incursions by artists, visits to the Art Gallery of WA and exhibitions in school and the community.

Students discover and explore the elements of Art through practical art making. Students are encouraged to express their creativity through the use of various materials and techniques. Students are exposed to many art forms, for example: drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, textiles, sculpture, felting and bookmaking.

Skills are developed incrementally. Art theory and history are embedded in lessons incidentally and more explicitly in the Upper Junior Primary.
