The Visual Arts program at Montrose Primary School gives the children a 50min weekly session to explore and, with guidance, use a variety of skills, techniques and processes involving modes of art making such as: Drawing, Painting, Collage, Construction, Modelling, Textiles and Multi-Media.
The children are introduced to a variety of art elements including line, shape, colour, texture, pattern and form. They are encouraged to discuss and share their work and the work of other children and well known artists. As the children move through the school the engagement fosters personal expression, critical and creative thinking and interpersonal communication skills.
The children’s work is showcased in our many corridor displays and at local galleries. The topics that are introduced are often based on integrated units of work in the classroom or whole school activities but all modes are covered each year.
