Curriculum - The Arts - Semester 1

The focus for Semester 1 is Visual Arts. During this time, students will have the opportunity to create artworks from a range of different media. They will also be exposed to various techniques and draw inspiration from some of history’s greats as well as current, influential artists.

To ignite a passion for The Arts, we began the year with a focus on hearts. We drew inspiration from American Pop Artist, Jim Dine. Each year group studied the work of Jim Dine before creating their own heart. Watercolour painting, wax resist and stippling have been a some of the techniques we have used.

Semester 1 Snapshot:

Heart Art: Jim Dine inspired Hearts initial lessons and Valentine’s Day focus.

Collaborative Art: Keith Haring inspired cover pages.

Nature Art: Eric Carl influenced landscapes and birds, leaf impressions, symmetrical bugs and insects, weavings and sun prints.

Emu Art: Wendy Binks inspired. 

We have a busy semester ahead and look forward to showing off some of our completed works during Open Morning in Week 10, Term 1.
