We are very proud of our Visual Arts program, which fires the imagination and creativity of children as well as teaching specific skills and processes.The Arts are a fundamental means of expression and communication in all societies. Through The Arts we gain a sense of our social and individual identity. Study in the Arts gives students access to the cultural diversity in their immediate community and the broader Australian and international context. They learn to recognise and value the cultural forms and traditions that constitute artistic heritage.In The Arts, students learn ways of experiencing, developing, representing and understanding ideas, emotions, values and cultural beliefs. They learn to take risks, be imaginative, question prevailing values, explore alternative solutions, engage in arts criticism, develop, practise and refine techniques, share opinions and extend the limits of The Arts.At Kalinda children experience a program structured on the children using different media to express themselves. The art teacher bases topics on those of the classrooms so that the programs complement each other and the Arts program is an extension of the classroom.The children's art is very proudly displayed around our school.
