Visual Arts at Ardeer South Primary School

The Visual Arts program at Ardeer South offers a diverse range of opportunities for students to become curious and creative learners through the exploration of different media and the development of skills and processes.


Visual Arts is taught within an engaging space providing students with access to a range of resources and materials to develop their creativity, imagination, skills and techniques within the Visual Arts and integrating other curriculum content.


The learning encompassed in the visual art program at Ardeer South is based on the Victorian Curriculum and involves the dimensions 'Explore and Express Ideas', 'Visual Arts Practices', 'Present and Perform' and 'Respond and Interpret'.  These dimensions focus on ideas, skills, techniques, processes and presentations.

At Ardeer South we use the following areas of art to develop these skills; painting, printing, collage, construction, modelling, drawing, threads and textiles. These may be introduced as individual projects or as part of a mixed media project. Also being introduced is the use of the computer in graphic presentations. These eight areas involve the children's imagination and allows for experimentation, planning and the application of skills, techniques and processes.  Students explore the quality of art works, discuss the purpose of the works and the audience it was created for and develop art language to express their thoughts about art works.
