At Meadow Heights Primary School students explore how and why artists create art. They develop their skills through a variety of art applications that include drawing, painting, construction, clay and textiles.
As the students learn new skills they will develop their own creative voice and express this in their art works by looking at various cultures, times and locations for inspiration.
Students will apply the Elements of Arts and Principals of Design to enhance their creations.
The foundation students will look at artists such as Cassie Stephens, Kandinsky, Van Gogh and Balarinji Designs. Grades 1 & 2 will look at Kandinsky, Van Gogh, Renouf and also a series of Aboriginal and Indigenous artists.
Students will extend their knowledge of media technologies and manipulate images, sounds and text. They will plan, create and present their stories by using movie making apps. They will learn how to communicate ideas to an audience.
