Visual Arts

Visual Art is an important part of the curriculum at Menai Primary School. Through art, children enhance creativity and imagination as well as improving practical and fine motor skills. The values and behaviours of patience, perseverance, resourcefulness, co-operation, self confidence and problem solving are also strongly practised and developed. Students learn to communicate through their art, at the same time responding to the art of others. They gain a broader understanding of how visual art is practised in our society and how it is practised and valued in other societies.

Every class in the school is involved in visual art for an hour a week through the RFF program. Themes for the artwork are negotiated with class teachers and often reflect what is being studied in the classroom. A broad range of areas are covered in visual art and each year builds on the skills and understanding of the year before. These areas are:

  • Drawing
  • Painting
  • Printing
  • Collage
  • Modelling/3D construction
  • Textiles and fibres

Through regular practical activities in these areas students' knowledge and understanding are developed. They come to understand:

  • Why we make visual artworks.
  • How we plan artworks using a variety of sources for inspiration including the world around us and past and present artists.
  • How we use elements and principles of art in the creating process.
  • The language we use when we are describing our own work and the work of others.
  • How art is used in our society and the value it has in the wider community.

Finally to quote Kate Hart..."At this time in history new technologies are developing rapidly. New and creative ways of thinking are essential. Art education has a pivotal role in helping to develop divergent and creative thinking."
