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 works are displayed in the school corridors and classrooms and the students derive immense pride and pleasure from the experience of having their work exhibited to the school community. Some children are selected to be the Artist of the Week, with their work put in the newsletter. Opportunities are sought whereby children’s artworks can be exhibited to the wider community. 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.
