Visual Arts

Junior School | Years 1 – 6

Visual Arts

The Art Studio is a room where students come to create, explore, and experience themselves through Art. Art has the potential to grow a child’s confidence, build knowledge of self, strengthen resilience and create opportunities to positivity contribute to well-being.

“Art can permeate the very deepest part of us, where no words exist.”

Through the Visual Arts curriculum, students apply their ideas, skills, and techniques to making artwork. Students develop studio habits to organise and care for materials and tools. They learn with growing sophistication to express and communicate ideas, using some visual art elements, and explore materials to express developing ideas about a given theme or thought.

When you create, you let the world see through your eyes.

Older students explore their ideas by replicating aspects of the style of another artist or movement. They then apply their ideas by selecting relevant materials, some appropriate techniques and visual art elements to create artwork. Students acknowledge artwork from different social, cultural, and historical contexts. With scaffolding, they make observations about an artist’s purpose or meaning, using some visual art terminology.

When you see and study another’s art, you’re seeing the world through their eyes.
