Visual Arts will give students the opportunity to explore cultural diversity through artworks. From Matisse to Kandinsky, Van Gogh, Monet and Warhol, street, pop, & contemporary; students will have exposure to artists that have revolutionised art. Grades 3&4 will focus on the elements of colour, lines, texture and shapes. Grades 5&6 will focus on colour, texture, space, form & value. They will experiment with different mediums such as charcoal, paint, clay, pastel and chalk. Students will focus on skills such as drawing, painting, collaging & constructing.  Students will not only develop an awareness of Art but they will learn how to analyse and interpret meaning. They will personalise their artworks by providing artist statements describing their inspiration and intentions.
