Welcome to Semester 1 2017
This semester, Grades 1, 4, 5 and 6 will have Visual Art. Grades Prep, 2 and 3 will have Performing Art and all grades will swap for Semester 2.
We look forward to the creation of lots of fantastic art this term. Meanwhile, have a look at the bottom of the page for pictures of art on display at last year’s Art Show.
In Visual Art, we look at both art making and art appreciation. Children are given opportunities to express their ideas when making their art and are encouraged to form responses to their own and other people’s artwork. We focus on the joy of art, allowing students to explore a range of art elements, such as colour, shape, texture, and experiment with a variety of media and materials across a range of art areas, such as drawing, painting, construction, collage, sculpture, fibrecrafts and printmaking.
Students attend one hour Visual Arts classes once a week for a Semester. In the other semester, they attend Performing Art classes. Lessons are held in the Art Room in B block. Art smocks are available in the room for student use. Student work is regularly displayed in the Art Room, the display window and the display board in the Office foyer. Work is also kept for display in the Art Show at the end of the year, and of course, work is sent home. Visual Art is taught by Zoe Doland.
