Visual Arts

Each week at Box Hill North Primary School, students engage in one hour of Visual Arts education with a specialist Arts teacher.

We offer a dedicated and well appointed Visual Arts learning space in which students are encouraged to explore their creative skills, build their Art knowledge, and challenge their technical abilities.  In a multi-arts approach to creativity, classes encourage students to:

  • Slow down and see detail
  • Consider before doing
  • Think through composition
  • Find potential in “mistakes”
  • Interpret a subject
  • Understand their emotional voice
  • Express their views with confidence

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

Classes offer fun and practical drawing, painting and construction activities that not only explore the artistic concepts of line, shape, colour, pattern and texture, but also include the study of art history (old and new masters) and its significance to many world cultures.

We are so proud of our students artistic efforts that every second year the whole school participates in an Art Fair to showcase their creations, talents and abilities.

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.

We run a progressive and innovative technology program to produce true 21st Century Citizens. Students in Prep enjoy using iPads and students in the senior school will be instructed with Ultrabooks as a part of our 1-to-1 program.
