Visual Art Program
Students participate in a weekly 50 minute session with a specialist Visual Art teacher in a well equipped room. Areas include painting, drawing, clay, collage, threads and textiles as well as ICT and digital media. Students regularly use their iPad to draw, research ideas, artists and galleries. They keep an online portfolio of their work-in-progress and completed artworks. Units are sequential, based around classroom inquiry themes, popular gallery exhibitions and student interests. Success and enjoyment are important as is group interaction and sharing of ideas. Art Captains are an important student-parent link and support the art program by publicising and helping with any school art events.
