Clayton South Primary School provides an Arts Program for all children encompassing Visual Arts as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum. The Arts program at Clayton South Primary School consists of a weekly session for every student where they are given opportunities to express ideas in a calm and friendly atmosphere.
The Visual Arts program incorporates both art making and art appreciation in association with developing a visual arts language. Students learn to explore their creativity and imagination through a skills based visual arts program. This supports the process of art making and students are given clear instructions on the correct use of tools, materials and techniques. Over the course of the year, students are able to experiment with a variety of media including painting, drawing, textiles, print-making, collage, construction and visual communication. They learn to develop a visual language around art elements that is appropriate when thinking and talking about art, such as line, shape, colour and texture.
Every year, all students from Foundation to Year 6 will be involved in the school concert. Concerts provide wonderful experiences for students in prop building, costuming, performing and many other ‘behind the scenes’ roles. It is also a wonderful opportunity for the whole school community to celebrate the many talented students we have at Clayton South Primary School.
