Visual Arts

The Visual Arts program at Williamstown North Primary School is considered an important part of students’ overall development during their Primary School years.  We value and foster imagination, creativity and original thinking and this is evident through the tasks, challenges and activities students undertake over the course of the year in Visual Art.


All students attend the Visual Art Room for a 60 minute lesson per week, taken by specialist Art teachers Emily Millman, Chrissie Van Nieuwkuyk (Foundation and Year 1) and Vicki Symons (Years 2 to Year 6).


During this session students use a range of art media and materials to plan, make, present and reflect on artworks. Planning is guided by the Victorian Curriculum (which has been introduced 2017).


During Art classes students use a range of art media and materials to plan, make, present and reflect on artworks which communicate their experiences, feelings, observations ideas and show skill development. Parent helpers are most welcome.


Art smocks are provided, however students may bring in their own.


Vibrant displays of students artwork are changed regularly in the corridors and the Art rooms to allow for as many students as possible to have their artworks viewed by the school community.

 

All art experiences from Foundation to Year 6 are sequential and are designed for students to not only reach their potential at each stage of their development, but to have the opportunity to excel above the expected level.

 

                 

The Williamstown North Primary Visual Art program is designed to promote creativity and imagination, where students are able to exercise their emotions and intellect simultaneously, therefore providing a vehicle for self expression.

 

Any Art incursions, special projects or competitions will be communicated through the school Newsletter and eNews bulletin.
