At Boroondara Park Primary School we offer an exciting, extensive and varied Visual Arts program. Our purpose built Art room allows us to offer ceramics, in addition to a full range of Art genres. All students from F – 6 experience a range of Visual Arts opportunities to explore different media, allowing them to continually develop their skills and understandings.
Our aim is to link these skills with the whole school concepts and to respond to Art events in the wider community. Short and ongoing projects are undertaken and our students are encouraged to reflect on their own completed artworks.
The Visual Arts includes exposing students to the works of renowned artists and requires students to respond to a variety of styles from a range of times in history.
The Visual Arts encourage all students to think creatively and produce high quality art works.
Art displays in the school are regular and the students derive immense pride and pleasure from the experience of having their work exhibited to the school community. There is an opportunity for students (and parents and staff) to showcase their art during Art Week and through the weekly selection of our Artist of the Week. Grade 5 and 6 students produce a permanent Art installation for the school every second year that leaves a lasting contribution to the art culture of the school.
