Visual Arts

 

Throughout the year students in all year levels have a 60 minute session in the art room each week. The children are encouraged to develop an understanding of the various art forms including drawing, painting, printing, modelling, construction, threads and textiles and art appreciation. Every child has the opportunity to explore a variety art mediums, develop specific skills and techniques, and experiment with using the visual arts elements of line, shape, pattern, colour and texture. 

 

Their response to these experiences will allow for the development of an appreciation and enjoyment of the various art forms. The art program provides opportunities for students to present their art work to others both within and outside the school community, for a variety of purposes.  Where possible the visual arts program will be linked and integrated with other curriculum areas. Parents are welcome to support the art program in a variety of ways, please feel free to contact the school if you would like to be involved.

DISPLAYS

 

At Streeton Primary, both students and teachers are proud of the work that is completed during class time. This is particularly true in Art, where students can spend between one to six weeks working on one piece of work. Therefore we are constantly putting up displays of students work in and around the art room. When touring the school please take some time to admire students art work and read the display sign explaining what students had to do and comments from the students relating to the tasks.

ART CONTESTS AND LUNCHTIME CLUB

 

During the year students from Streeton Primary are given the opportunity to participate in art competitions from around the world. Some competitions come with age restrictions and set themes, while other competitions are open to all ages and are free choice. If you hear of any art competitions that are available, please let the school know via email.
