In Visual Arts sessions at Kalinda, students make and respond to artworks using a range of materials and processes and a growing art-specific vocabulary. The program engages students’ imagination and creativity whilst developing specific skills and techniques in a structured and sequential program. Visual Arts provides opportunities for expression and personal growth, assisting them to develop growth mindset skills such as resilience and courage.
The Visual Arts program is developed with reference to the Victorian Curriculum and makes concurrent connections with whole-school topics being studied in classrooms. The students create two and three-dimensional artworks using a range of materials including clay, paint, recycled and natural materials. They are introduced to artworks from contemporary, historical and indigenous artists and learn to identify features of their styles.
Student artwork is proudly displayed throughout the school corridors, providing opportunity to admire, discuss and respect the developing talents of our children.
