At Balnarring Primary School, we recognise the important role of the Visual Arts in the development of the whole child, as an opportunity for self-expression. We encourage and guide students to explore their creativity, nurture their imagination, develop innovative new ideas and acquire a variety of skills.
A process which is relevant to all areas of the curriculum!
The Art room is a creative hub in the school. There are always lots of ‘works in progress’ and projects which are ready to share and display. There is a wide variety of equipment, tools and materials available for students to use and the storeroom’s abound with wonderful treasures to stimulate the imagination. The storeroom abounds with many wonderful treasures to stimulate the imagination as being just the thing for the job!
There are opportunities for student involvement in community projects such as the Red Hill Show and an opportunity to display their work at the Red Hill Bakery in Balnarring. Students are provided with information about local art clubs and private lessons.
At every ability level, students are congratulated for their efforts and encouraged to develop their individual artistic skills. Students’ works are regularly exhibited throughout the school to be appreciated by all!
