Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.
Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.
Year 5 and 6 students have been working collaboratively in pairs to create a '3D abstract, Construction, balance Sculpture'.
The students have been enthusiastically involved with making
artistic decisions together, after considering concepts such as
identifying the features of abstract art and using shape, colour and
pattern repetitions or themes to create cohesion in their art work. They
also practised skills such as physical balancing and card construction
joining techniques. In addition, students practised working creatively
and constructively in pairs.
Year 5 and 6 were very proud of their results and may have
rightly felt that their artwork was worthy of a place in a modern art
gallery. What do you think?
