The Visual Arts program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to discover new techniques using different materials, as well as developing visual sensitivity to nature and the environment. The arts program includes the study of art in history and its place in world cultures. Through their artwork, students are encouraged to explore real, imaginary and abstract ideas of their own and the artistic styles of others.
All students at Greythorn Primary School experience a 50 minute lesson each week in the art room, focusing on the elements of art including colour, line, shape, pattern, texture, space and form. Over the year students will build on their skills and techniques in all areas of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, ceramics and construction.
Whenever possible, art lessons are linked to the inquiry units studied at each year level in order to enhance the unit of work and to draw upon the meaningful experiences and observations of each student.
