Junior School The Arts

‘The Arts are fundamental resources through which the world is viewed, meaning is created and the mind is developed,’ Elliot W. Eisner, Professor of Education and Art, Stanford University, 1997.

Visual Art lessons are undertaken with a specialist teacher each week in our Junior School Art room for all year levels P to 6, with students participating in a wide range of learning experiences that challenge their ability to think, create, respond and reflect on artworks.

In MAKING artworks, students define and solve visual problems by using visual language and expression, experimenting and applying media to communicate thoughts, feelings, ideas, experiences and observations.

In RESPONDING artworks, students investigate artistic expression and critically analyse artworks within diverse contexts.
