Our Visual Arts program is based on explicit teaching and encouraging students to take risks with their creativity and imagination. The school has five art rooms with two full-time visual art teachers who provide a differentiated and bespoke visual arts program that supports the diverse learning abilities of the students from Foundation to our Senior School.
Combining both theory and practice, the visual arts program supports the students to link their artwork with Australian and international artists focusing on a large variety of methods and techniques. The students will be exposed to and experience artistic techniques in drawing, painting, collage, textiles, 3D construction and printmaking, as well as consolidating the design elements and principles.
We believe that the process of making is just as important as the end artistic result and as such we proudly display student photos of ‘making’ alongside the student artworks throughout the school. This promotes pride in our students and elicits an appreciation of the arts for all our students.
