At Caralee Community School, students from Years 1 to 6 take part in a specialist Visual Arts session once a week.
Visual Arts allows individuals to gain imagination, creativity, curiosity, confidence and most of all, enjoyment. Students participate in a broad range of visual art activities and learning. They learn how to explore their creative side through making and responding to art.
Students learn about the visual elements of art through practical hands on activities that develop skills, techniques and processes. They engage with, and explore, the qualities and properties of different materials such as clay, paint and textiles as well as approaches such as painting, collage, sculpture, drawing, print making and ceramics.
As part of the school’s Visual Arts program, students have also contributed to the installation of various art throughout the school grounds and continue to produce amazing artwork displayed in the Art room.
