Visual Arts

The Arts are highly valued at Kunyung Primary School. We believe learning about and through the Arts is fundamental to the development of the whole child, promoting creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving skills and social interactions. The Arts are a powerful mode of communication through which students explore and construct a sense of self and develop an understanding of the world around them. Arts provide students with a wide range of opportunities and means to respond to their experiences and engage with historical, social and cultural perspectives. Students are stimulated to think and to articulate their thoughts in new ways, and through a variety of media and technologies.

 

Visual Arts Program

The impact of our amazing Visual Arts program is clearly evident upon entering our grounds and permeates throughout the school. Our visual arts teachers, who are artists in their own right, share their passion and talents with our students.

Students are involved in creative processes that encourage the development and expression of ideas using visual arts. Drawing on imagination and innovation, students resolve problems which are inherent in art projects. They consider the elements of art and design: line, shape, form, colour, texture and pattern. The role of visual arts in diverse cultures both historically and contemporary is studied. Students develop an appreciation and discuss reflections about works of art, including their own to develop understandings of the principles of art and design in the world around them.
