Visual Arts

All students at Box Hill North Primary School experience an hour each week in the art room with a specialist Visual Arts teacher. The aim is to inspire a child’s imagination while building knowledge, artistic techniques, fine motor skills, literacy, numeracy, cognitive skills and confidence.

In a multi-arts approach to creativity, classes feature:

  • Painting
  • Sculpture
  • Collage
  • Mosaics
  • Sketching

Students explore the artistic concepts of line, shape, colour, pattern and texture.

The program also includes the study of art history (old and new masters) and its relevance and significance to many world cultures.

Students participate in a number of collaborative works throughout the year. This includes each year level working together to produce an artwork that is then auctioned at the schools major fundraiser of the year. Every second year the whole school participates in an Art Fair showcasing the work of the students and providing opportunities for further learning.

Testimonials

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
