Visual Art lessons are conducted in the dedicated art space which is fully equipped and recently updated with ample storage, bench space, work tops for children, wet area and printing press.
Every week students have a 1 hour Visual Art lesson.
The Visual Arts program covers: printmaking, painting, 2D & 3D construction, sculpture, threads and textiles, drawing and Christmas activities.
The Visual Arts show held every second year allows children the opportunity to display their own art work within our community and respond to and explore other art works.
The art program also incorporates projects that will be displayed outside in the school garden and playground area.
Every second year students work with an Artisit in residence which culminates in a whole school performance where every student performs at the Clocktower Theatre in Moonee Ponds. In this production the students have the opportunity to refine their skills and share them in a professional theatre for a wider audiencef. It is an opportunity to showcase their talents.
The Performing Arts Program includes Music, Drama and Dance. Each discipline has its own distinctive body of knowledge and its own elements, techniques and conventions. Students develop their literacy in each discipline which enables them to grow and to contribute to their school, community and culture. Performing Arts develop the artistic and aesthetic dimensions of human experience and contribute to our intellectual ability. They stimulate imagination, thinking and understanding.
We also host a rich choice of instruments for our during-school private music programs in the Community Room. These include: Keyboard, Guitar and Piano. The lessons are taken by and external provider and are charged separately to school fees and charges.
