At Balnarring Primary School, we recognise the important role of Visual Arts in the development of the whole child.
Students visit the art room each week. They are encouraged and guided to explore their creativity, nurture their imagination, develop innovative new ideas and acquire a variety of skills.
The art room is a creative hub within the school. It houses a wide variety of equipment, tools and materials that are available for student use and the shelves and tubs abound with many recycled materials to stimulate the imagination.
There are always ‘works in progress’ positioned along the benches waiting for the young, proud artist’s to return. Completed works are regularly exhibited throughout the many passageways for all to enjoy.
In addition, students are encouraged to get involved in community art projects; they are provided with information about local art shows, clubs, activities and private lessons.
