Visual Arts

The Visual Arts program at Deer Park West Primary School is designed to encourage and challenge students to achieve their artistic potential in an enjoyable and supportive environment. Each week, students develop their creativity and imagination as well as refine their practical and fine motor skills. They learn to make choices when experimenting with materials, tools and techniques.

 

Throughout their time at Deer Park West Primary School, students are given the opportunity to experiment with a variety of art mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, textiles, print-making, collage and construction. They learn to develop a visual language around art elements that is appropriate when thinking and talking about art, such as line, shape, colour and texture. 

 

Students look at various artworks of Australian and International artists to inspire their own works. They are encouraged to share their thoughts, observations and feelings and then have a go themselves. The Visual Arts Program is based on the Victorian Curriculum and units taught are aligned and linked with classroom learning.
